Today we launch voiceOK originals, a series of original children's stories to inspire and delight. We will be releasing four new titles a month to the voiceOK app, these stories will complement the public domain, copyright-free and authorised stories we use within the voiceOK app currently.
Inspired by Pratham Books from India, who have been releasing stories under creative commons for over 10 years. All voiceOK originals (stories text and book covers) will be released under creative commons licenses Attribution 4.0 International, meaning anyone in the world can use or remix voiceOK originals in both personal or commercial projects as long as the new work attributes the original source. We look forward to adding some great engaging stories to the creative commons world.
