September 11, 2017
The district administration in Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh has established an e-library for blind students in the Government Higher Secondary School.
This makes Jabalpur the first district in the state to have an e-Library for blind students, that too in a government institute.
The library ensures same ease of access to books and magazines for blind students like students in other schools enjoy.
The school has five computers arranged with the support of Central Bank of India, and the library is maintained by the district administration alone without any government fund.
The school has become one of the 147 members of Sugamya Pustkalaya in the country to make many subjects and language books with multiple accessible formats.
Now, students are getting books of their choice on just one click. They can hear, record or download the content for studies.
