Because I am trying to make an easily accessible prototype, the instructions for any of my solutions are fairly simple and require minimum effort.
Scenario 1: Podcast
In order for the user to listen to my podcast, they have to have some access to an electronic device where mp3 sound can be played. While I will post the podcast to the mainstream channels like Apple Music, Spotify, and Anchor, I will also make sure it can be shared in forms where the user does not have to pay anything at all or even download an app. Because of the target audience will be in Egypt, I will make sure that the episodes of the podcast are on Soundcloud, which is one of the widely used apps in the circulation of sounds there and have the episodes as shareable voice-notes on WhatsApp that anyone can share them easily. All that is required at this point is a phone, which most of the people in Egypt have access to.
Scenario 2: Youtube Series/Episodes
This will be a bit harder than sound episodes since these videos will require access to youtube and an internet connection, which may deter a lot of people from tuning in since the internet speed is slower in Egypt and costs a lot. I can share these videos on Facebook and maybe if it can be accessed on a tv channel, that would make it easier for the user to consume.
Scenario 3: A slideshow with a voice over
For this project, the user will need a phone as well to consume the material, but the internet connection will not be necessary. It may be required at the moment of downloading the slideshow, but it won’t be required after that which makes it better.
Scenario 4: A pamphlet
In the previous 3 scenarios, the user does not need to know how to read or write since the information is either presented visually or in audio, but the internet connection is a must. In this case, no phone or internet connection is needed, but the user will need to know how to read or have access to someone who can read the pamphlet for them.
