Coimbatore:‘Vokal’, a vernacular question and answer knowledge sharing platform, launched mobile application in Tamil, here on Saturday.

Speaking at the launch, Aprameya Radhakrishna, CEO, Vokal, said, “Anyone who does not know English in India has a big problem in accessing relevant answers to their questions. Their internet experience is poor with a dearth of meaningful content. We are building a peer-to-peer question and answer network that can cater to their information and knowledge needs. We invite the best of Coimbatore to share knowledge with the rest of Tamil Nadu.”

 

Mayank Bidawatka, Co-founder, Vokal, said, “Tamilians really celebrate their mother tongue and are at the forefront of all things knowledge. Vokal has a unique solution for solving the knowledge and information needs of the vernacular market. We believe that these users will turn to value-added products like Vokal apart from the entertainment apps they use today. Our innovation lies in the Indianisation of existing solutions and providing the easiest way for people to express themselves. We are on a mission to cater to 500 million vernacular internet users, and we want to be one of the first few products to achieve this milestone.”

“This knowledge sharing revolves around 100s of topics of interest. Users get to choose from 10+ interests and can follow creators around these interests. Users can ask questions that are answered in regional languages by volunteering experts on the platform. Vokal is simple to use. Users ask a question - in their local Indian language, either through a voice message or text. This is then answered by an expert,” he added.
