Fablo: Bedtime stories and minority language preservation
Languages are dying at an unprecedented rate, there are thousands of endangered languages all over the world. Even though this is a pressing issue there aren’t a lot of minority language resources and tools. This is due to the lack of data available for minority languages. Here is where Fablo comes in. Fablo gamifies the experience of learning and archiving a minority language. Fablo is a collaborative storytelling tool, that through the universal act of telling stories, helps communities and families pass the knowledge of a language from a generation to the next, allows researchers and linguists to gather a rich amount of data for minority languages, and makes the collection of the data-set necessary to develop further technology possible.
