NCERT launches books in Braille
May 10, 2017
The National Council of Education Research and Training has launched books in Braille which can be read by the blind along with the other children in a regular classroom.
This will help students to study in the same space without feeling under confident. These books are available on the NCERT website and can be downloaded free of cost.
There is also a bar coded card of these books through which these books could be downloaded in mobile phones. The books are available in CDs for those who do not have access to the Internet.
The books have been brought out under 'Barkhaa Series', supplementary graded reading series, originally developed by the NCERT.
