Generally, when a
language drops below
20,000 speakers it is
not a promising sign.
We prefer four
measures of literacy by
language. A challenge
occurs when there is
no digital dictionary
available for a
language. For people
who cannot read
because they are blind
or illiterate we'd like to
use text to speech
software to say the
warning.

Mozambique has another 32 languages, including four separate
dialects of Makhuwa. 16 more languages not shown have over
100,000 speakers each. Iran has at least another 36 languages.
That means a lot of network connections and cores to send
warnings.
