Here is my presentation on the Speak Out voice protest web app.
The concept is to use the devices we already have to amplify voices at protests. One person speaks into their phone. Other people’s phones amplify that audio over a wider space, without the need for a sound system.
I went to a Transportation Alternatives protest over the summer where there was no sound system for the event speakers or organizers. It was frustrating and uninspiring. What if we could amplify ourselves with our phones instead?
Here is a demo, in which I am reading from Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s victory speech.
