New technology to help blind children read Bangla
November 2, 2016
The Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, Jadavpur University and Kolkata's Indian Statistical Institute have come up with a new software for blind children.
The technology has been given to a research centre to help translate major classic stories of Bengali literature into braille. The classic works will also include plays and short stories of famous writers like Rabindranath Tagore.
As the next initiative, the institutes are planning to develop accessible technologies for people with dyslexia.
