National Braille Trust to publish books in Braille, digital formats
May 17, 2017
The National Book Trust has started publishing books in Braille and digital formats for blind readers.
A special project was started recently as there is a large population which cannot read printed text. Over 100 e-books and four books in Braille have been brought out so far. The new copyright rules have made it easier.
Books have been made accessible to blind people and exempted from the copyright act if they are circulated free of cost among the blind.
