Thanks for the clarification on speech-to-text stuff, Gonzalo. A project
for the future would be creating a Haitian Creole text-to-speech engine.
We've been relying on the French one, which does not pronounce certain
things correctly.

Looks like it! It's definitely set up along the lines of the library model
instead of the classroom model, which is what we're going for. I'm glad we
don't have to reinvent this particular wheel.

I've got a few questions:
-Does Pathagar support user accounts? (if I post a comment or upload a
book, will it display who posted / uploaded the book?)

We want to collect data to attract funding in the future. Similar projects
have created software that allows them to get information beyond just who's
reading what book: they can monitor whether students read a book all the
way through, and how long they spent looking at each page. Ideally, we'd be
able to access this info remotely (from the States) by getting it from an
online schoolserver installed on-site. But, as I understand Pathagar
currently, users download books to their own computers so there'd be no way
of collecting this info. What solutions could enable us to collect this
info, and what are the advantages and disadvantages of implementing them?

Thanks all. I'll be attempting to follow the instructions on Github
<https://github.com/pathagarbooks/pathagar> for installing Pathagar on my
personal machine later today so I can check it out.
