Being accepted as a Google Summer of Code student is quite competitive. Accepted students typically have thoroughly researched the technologies of their proposed project and have been in frequent contact with potential mentors. Simply copying and pasting an idea here will not work. On the other hand, creating a completely new idea without first consulting potential mentors is unlikely to work out.
If there is no specific contact given you can ask questions on SMC discussion mailing-list ( ) or in the IRC channel ( #smc-project channel in server )
If there is no specific contact given you can ask questions on the general KDE development list See the KDE mailing lists page for information on available mailing lists and how to subscribe.
== Adding a Proposal==
We need two things here :
#A Jabber bot that supports the DICT protocol ( so we can run a bot that will serve word meanings ) . If this bot can learn/modify words, it will be better.
#A KDE 4 Plasmoid that does the same. THere There is already a KDE Plasmoid that supports But it cannot be configured to support other dictionary servers right now.( Note to SMC members : We need to find out the current status of this plasmoid )
===Dhvani TTS : Porting to Windows and Sound system change===
Dhvani is an Indic TTS engine. Dhvani use uses ALSA as sound system. An additional SDL based sound system is required to make it work on windowsother operating systems
===Dhvani TTS : Speech dispatcher driver and Orca integration===
Dhvani has generic driver for speech dispatcher and that is not efficient and cannot use many features of dhvani. Write a driver for speech-dispatcher and integrate it with Orca so that it works as Screenreader
=== Calender===
Create a calendrical calculation library that will be usable from Python/C++ programs. Writing a C++/C library and writing a Python wrapper for it is enough. This can be used to display Indian calendars on Free Desktops
