A huge global issue especially in the developing countries is the lack of computing devices and of basic abilities for the use of information technologies. Telecommunication infrastructure is the major cause for this problem. Numerous approaches have been developed to make the access to the internet easier for all, yet the problem lacks a complete solution, since most of them focus on delivering new infrastructure, computers, or digital literacy programs. As such, they are hindered by steep curves of penetration, adoption and learning. In this paper we develop a new platform that enables the larger population that is not currently connected to the internet to get the benefits of the internet using any kind of phone (a landline, mobile phone etc.) exploiting the recent advancements in cloud computing and automatic speech recognition.
