Abstract: In this paper the authors examine how digital technology can be used to inspire, record and present oral stories in an African context. In particular they explore how to create technologies that are sympathetic to the cultures of the storytellers, both in the capture of stories and their retelling. Specifically, they look at: inspiring stories in District Six in Cape Town; capturing digital stories from users with low literacy levels and using virtual reality to retell indigenous and personal experience narratives.
