English: Telephone-based information access has the potential to deliver a significant positive impact in the developing world. We discuss some of the most important issues that must be addressed in order to realize this potential; including matters related to resource development; automatic speech recognition; text-to-speech systems; and user-interface design. Although our main focus has been on the eleven official languages of South Africa; we believe that many of these same issues will be relevant for the application of speech technology throughout the developing world.
