SL Dictionary

Product Description

SL Dictionary is a mobile app for English to Sinhala and Sinhala to English translations for devices on an iOS operating system. It consists of more than 130,000 English and Sinhala words and supports an English pronunciation function. The iSinglish Keyboard incorporated enables users to type Sinhala words with ease.

Jurors’ Evaluation

SL Dictionary is a mobile app that makes available a dictionary that users can carry around in the palm of their hand. Increasing use of colloquialism in both languages often makes it a difficult task to get the correct meaning and context when translating. SL Dictionary responds to this difficulty and is extremely useful for students and adults alike, as it enables users to readily retrieve appropriate Sinhala and English words. Further, the English pronunciation function and the iSinglish keyboard are useful and user friendly and is a boon for the vast majority of Sinhala speaking community as they are keen to learn English to improve their communication skills. Comments and feedback from users nationally and internationally show that the app is used extensively and is considered a valuable tool. SL Dictionary claims to be the first of its kind and therefore deserves the recognition for the valuable service it provides to the community.

Doc Call

Product Description

The Doc Call app enables a user to receive initial medical advice from a qualified doctor simply by dialing 247 from a Mobitel connection or 1247 from a SLT connection. It is a joint initiative of Mobitel (Pvt) Ltd and the Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA).

Doctors affiliated to SLMA provide medical advice to a subscriber of Mobitel or Sri Lanak Telecom (SLT) services through the Mobitel Doc Call platform. The caller is directed to an SLMA doctor via an IVR portal. Thereafter the subscriber is able to directly consult a doctor, who gives provisional advice until the caller can see a doctor in person.

The service is available in the country’s main languages of Sinhala, Tamil and English. It is a 24 hours, 7 days per week service and hence the short code 247.

Jurors’ Evaluation

This mobile service is considered a unique and valuable service as it provides medical advice via a telephone call. Having experienced the service, the jurors were impressed by the promptness of the response, probity of the questions in understanding the medical condition and the advice given as an interim measure.  The only drawback currently is that this service is available to only Mobitel and  SLT customers, though plans are said to be underway for opening the platform to other service providers.  The service handles approximately 1,500 successful calls per month mostly from rural areas. Some callers are people with suicidal tendencies. Therefore, this can be considered a great community service, though it charges a nominal fee.

The directory information is accessible from any place at anytime and searching can be by keywords, category etc.  This has created a speedier business communication space and it has also made life easier and convenient for many.

Jurors’ Evaluation

SLT Rainbow pages on mobile is an easy to use app which provides directory services to a device held on your palm.  This effectively makes the cumbersome print directory archaic. For a person looking for a number on–the-go, this app is invaluable as it provides contact details in a user-friendly manner. The visually identifiable icons provide quick access to a over 24 categories of businesses and government organisations. The map integration for locating establishments, ability to directly call, email or fax from the app, and its capability to save contacts to your mobile device directly from the app, can all be considered as value added services. These features combined with its availability on both iOS and Android, devices that gives accessibility to a larger segment of society makes it worthy of recognition.
