Unable to read Kannada on Kindle – Ask for Language Support, sign the petition

I’m unable to read Kannada books on Kindle. In Kindle Android app, I see the index rendering properly in Kannada but the actual content looks broken. (see the image). This is not something big for a multinational such as Amazon to fix. Urge them to fix these for all devices. Not only Amazon but other device manufacturers should work on it too. Let’s ask our government to make it a mandate. Sign the petition here.

Update: The petition is only for Kannada Support but also for all other Indic Languages on Electronic devices.

Kindle - Kannada issue

IEG: Project status updates – February

  • Localized the project page for Kannada Wiki for better collaboration with Community. ಸದಸ್ಯ:Omshivaprakash/ಯೋಜನೆಗಳು/ಕನ್ನಡ_ವಿಕಿಮೀಡಿಯ_ಯೋಜನೆಗಳನ್ನು_ಡಿಜಿಟಲ್‌_ಲೈಬ್ರರಿಗಳೊಂದಿಗೆ_ಬೆಳಸುವುದು
  • Crowd sourcing project pages reviewed to fix the flow.
  • Requested community members & external resources to help us review the best books which should have a page in wiki
  • Out of copyright books list created to be pushed to wiki source.
  • Seeked further information on License issues – DLI and OUDL mark books as OUT_OF_COPYRIGHT which are questionable. Need better source to identify the books copyrights. \
  • Initiated tests and activities to push the books to Internet Archive & to Wiki commons
  • Requested help from community to get the commons books to wiki source.
  • Officially requested Prajavani and other news paper agencies to share the E-Book information under Creative Commons license to build wiki pages effectively.
  • Follow-ups done to check the status of content collaboration from news papers.
  • Tested article creation on wiki – moved the new page creation to sandbox as stub articles are a big no for Kannada Wiki. Using sandbox would be a best start to train new wikipedians to build a complete page before pushing the articles to main namespace.
  • Metadata review has been speeded up.
