There are approximately 300,000 Knanaya people in India and elsewhere around the world. Those in India live mostly in the far south-western state of Kerala.

The Knanaya Voice website includes sections devoted community news, video (referred to as the Vision page), obituaries, Knanaya greetings and songs. The website also features links to Knanaya television programs and e-newspapers, an About Us page and links to contact the website's publisher. The text of the pages is, by default, in Malayalam, also known as Kairali, the local language of the region. Through webpage translation services, such as the one powered by Google, it is possible for those who do not read Malayalam to make use of the site.

A great deal of the news on the Knanaya Voice website centers on happenings related to the Catholic church in the area. To make the News and Vision pages more relevant to site visitors, a drop-down menu is attached to both of these pages, asking readers to choose from pages devoted to India, the United States or Europe.
