Banaras Hindu University to publish audio textbooks
November 19, 2016
To help visually impaired students and those with learning disabilities to read independently, the Banaras Hindu University is converting books into audio textbooks that can be heard with a click of the mouse on a computer.
A special software and digital format is being done as a part of the digitization process. All the digitized documents and books will be kept in a Digital Resource Centre that will be set up within eight months.
There are over a 100 visually-impaired students in the university. More than 1,000 books had been made ready for use so far. The specially designed software will help the visually-impaired students to move from line to line while listening to the audio version on their earphones.
