The work of SIL Cameroon extends beyond the written word.
National Language Media Services
The National Language Media Services (NLMS) team works to equip language communities with a variety of non-print products, in a form oral communicators prefer. The NLMS team can provide the following services:
Consultations – helping language teams in their planning and use of media.
Resource/Training – providing training in program planning and production skills (for example: how to use Audacity).
Technical assistance – assisting in research development; equipment evaluation and sales; production of pilot projects; postproduction and quality control.
Distribution — providing hardware options for use in engaging language groups.
Products — producing media that is relevant to the intended audience with local ownership that will grow and be sustained (music, scriptural recordings, songs, traditional story recordings, oral stories, traditional singing, etc. and dubbing films, etc.)
