Hello, Wikimedians of Africa!
The Reading team at the Wikimedia Foundation is working to support readers
who want to take articles offline to read and share later on their phones -
a use case we learned about from deep research earlier this year
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/New_Readers/Findings> . We’ve built a
few prototypes and are looking for people to test them, particularly people
who don’t know Wikipedia all that well.
We’d love if you could help us find anyone who doesn’t edit who might be
interested in this feature and would want to test it. If you know anyone
like this, please send them the following message:
Hello! Wikipedia needs your help to improve. We’re looking for people who
have internet access at least sometimes and like to have access to content
when they’re not connected to the internet. We would like to learn from
you. If you would be willing to participate in a study to tell us more,
please fill out this survey
<https://wikimedia.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_09wJQzQs54DETUF>  before
November 25. Testing will only be available in English for now.
is hosted on a third-party service. For information about data handling and

You can see the prototypes and leave comments on meta
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/New_Readers/Offline>, though please
don’t send this page to anyone filling out the survey as it could bias test
We’re also looking for feedback about how to identify and prioritize
regions for our work, and would welcome your perspective on that meta page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/New_Readers/Target_countries> as well.
