INKLUDE offers inclusive education products for blind students
New Delhi-based social venture INKLUDE has come up with inclusive education products like books and games for blind children and adults.
INKLUDE aims to change the way Braille and geometrical shapes are taught to blind people. They have launched a wide range of educational and recreational devices, which can be used by children with and without vision.
Children who are blind depend on touch or their tactile sense to experience the world. However, Braille books and aids that are available are not inclusive. This makes it hard for a sighted teacher, parent, or friend to teach a blind child to read. When it comes to teaching them shapes and geometry, there are no books available which have proper tactile images.
The books introduced by INKLUDE are integrated with special embossing technique. This does not disturb the reading experience of a sighted reader and at the same time it can be read by a blind person by sensing the tactile Braille and images through their fingers.
INKLUDE is owned by Chanakya Mudrak Pvt. Ltd., which is an award winning Delhi based printing company. It has worked on some of India's prestigious inclusive projects like the development of NCERT’s inclusive Children’s exemplar books, Audio-Braille Accessible Menus, Tactile alphabet books and many more such inclusive products.
