From Chris ( author of DemoRecorder ):
In the DemoRecorder-business, we basically do two types of charity:
Since December 2009, we use a part of the revenue from DemoRecorder for our activities on kiva.org, i.e., for microcredit lending and for donations for kiva.org itself, for funding its operation.
If you want to help small businesses in developping countries through Kiva, too, you are invited to join the DemoRecorder lending team there.
The recordings cover basic things, for example, showing what stairlift are, how they are installed, how to operate them, etc.
The tutorial are saved in shareable video clip format so they can be played using a computer, a DVD player or other device.
The clips have been very helpful to people with physical disabilities and sensory impairment. Apart from being free, an advantage is that the screen recordings can be shared and viewed as many times as desired.
In addition to stairlift related clips we have produced a number of recordings showing viewers how start a project group which salvages unwanted computers and installs Debian Linux so the machines can be used to benefit the community. The series also covers use of some of the software which come packaged with Debian.
Being able to use a screen recorder program which runs in Linux is very helpful."
