Citizen archivists that document low-resource languages using audio or video face a range of structural and functional constraints -- from financial to social to educational and technological. This often makes it really hard to include digital accessibility considerations while publishing the media content. The OpenSpeaks toolkit that was built keeping such archivists in mind is currently extending its open educational resources through a bottom-up research initiative with support from the UNLOCK Accelerator of Wikimedia Deutschland.
