Aung San Suu Kyi 2012 by-election campaign speech

English translation of Aung San Suu Kyi’s official campaign speech

I took the liberty of adding English subtitles (and Burmese, for the curious) to Aung San Suu Kyi’s 15 minute official campaign speech for the 2012 by-elections, run on Burmese state television and radio. It’s now uploaded onto my Youtube channel.

(The English translations are adapted from the English edition of the New Light of Myanmar, although modified for clarity and conciseness. There was some awkward language and word choice that I changed.)

Burmese subtitles of the speech

To get the Burmese language subtitles working, you MUST have a Burmese Unicode-compliant font (e.g. Myanmar3, Parabaik, WinUniInwwaPadauk) installed on your computer, not Zawgyi (which is not Unicode). More info here. First, select the Burmese captions on Youtube’s captions on the bottom right hand corner:

CC > Burmese

Then, change the Burmese language font settings :

CC > Settings… > Font > Select a [Burmese Unicode font]

Enjoy! I’m all for increasing accessibility of knowledge and information.
