2016 EDU: History Month in August on the virtual world of Kitely. Autodocent on call

History Month in August on the virtual world of Kitely.  
Autodocent on call
In preparation for August History month on Kitely, Ravyn Stormchyld, has set up an autodocent system that will give you a spoken narration about an item when you get near it.  You wear a hud provided by Rayvn to trigger the narration.  The audio is prepared from a notecard by a text-to-speech engine supported by code that breaks the audio files into 9 second clips to conform to the limit established by SL.

Kitely History Month 

Residents of Kitely are organizing History Month for the month of August. The event is designed to highlight the many historic builds in Kitely and to encourage more of them. At the History Month Hub, visitors will receive a HUD and landmarks to allow them to visit the history-related worlds around the grid.
  • The Hub may not be open till Aug. 1, but the HG address is:
