Chennai Book Fair has a stall dedicated to books in Braille


The Chennai Book Fair, which starts today, promises to be a more exciting and inclusive one this year.

Among the many attractions is a stall with books in braille.

There are over 700 stalls, with one dedicated to people with impaired vision. The Madurai-based Indian Institute for the Blind, which is one of the biggest braille printers in Tamil Nadu, is exhibiting the books.

The demand for braille books is going up but the supply is limited mostly to libraries, so the stall will help people with vision disabilities get access to more books.

A wide variety of books in audio format are also available. The book fair is on until 13 June at the Island Grounds in Anna Salai, Chennai.
