[AI] Seeking techniques for proof reading text

I think having such a session on skype is not a very good option.
Skkype needs higher bandwidth, and issues like voice fluctuation,
call disconnection etc are very general with it.

I’ve seen a suggestion about doing it on  bharat café or other similar
places, but   at least in case of bharat cafe, it’s difficult for
anyone to have a new account there. It seeks your  ISP provided e-mail
ID  and verifies it.
As per I know, it does not accept the public e-mail services as gmail,
yahoo, rediff or so on.

Usually it takes 48 to 72 hours to have an account there.

I can  set up an online streaming  which will enable almost everyone
to log on to a website and it will start playing in their favorite
media player as soon as they will hit enter.
Those who have questions can chat their queries which can then be answered.
One can understand it like a radio show where listeners can listen
wherever they want and contact the station and/or RJ in case they want
to get in touch.
This will give chance to a number of folks to listen and enjoy.


Since a number of folks may be benefited by it, we can have such a
session if you order.

Here, I’d like to tell that having such a stream requires streaming
softwares which should be installed in the computer of the person who
is conducting the session.
a bit of expertise or at least a one time hand-on on the software is
appreciated.

Listeners do not require any additional software though.

I can work in this context according to your instructions.

regards,
Prateek agarwal.

I am trying to figure the techno part. Probably if I can email a few
documents I may take up for editing in advance with some general points
I will be discussing and if all of us can use the same documents owhile
on the Skype call it should be fine. Also, I cn record this session and
put it up at IP or with Pratheeq.

Do inform the timing and the mode of such an online session. would be
really beneficial..
Maybe, it can be conducted on Skype and the time and contact ID shared
on the group.

Dear Subramani Sir,
I am happy to know that we will be getting a chance to know your
experiences
in terms of proof reading. I as a lawyer, would like to attend your
session.

Currently I have hardly any knowledge of proof reading.
I shall be grateful to you if you kindly let me know about the session.
With Regards,
Amar Jain.
