Semi-Literate means those people who face challenges in digital enablement and are not too familiar with using smartphones for text message communication. Any progress to reduce the difficulty of their smartphone usage can help these people. These people are over one billion worldwide. The dataset contains text messages in English (some of these are translations of local text messages) from semi-literate Indian users. The dataset has been derived from face to face surveys primarily. Only 10% by online surveys since these people are not comfortable in doing online surveys.
