I’m just coming back from a short visit (15 days) to Canada where I met the Kabyle community in 5 Canadian cities: Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Sherbrooke and Toronto.
The purpose of the visit is to popularize the voice free dataset project of Mozilla and Sentence collector tool to collect more Kabyle voices.
I noticed that the Kab Canadian citzens begin to develop their own accent.
I took the opportunity to visit Mozilla’s Office in Toronto where I met Mikael Hoye and I recorded a short interview that will be broadcasted later on TQ5, a Kabyle TV based in Montreal.
Thanks for Mike who received me and thanks for Jenny who proposed help for a live chat intervention, but unfortunately we couldn’t due to technical things in Ottawa where I gave the last speech.
