The Voice of America is set to become the first international broadcaster with a presence on the Internet. Starting Aug. 15, the U.S. government service will start offering news and regional reports in 15 languages, dramatically expanding an experimental English-language service begun in January. Among the offerings: round-the-clock, 10-minute newscasts in Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Arabic, Czech and Swahili -- digitized for net delivery, but capable of being decoded by most digital audio software.Post to New Media "The Internet."
