Alphabet picture book for the visually impaired
27-year-old Upasana Makati started an alphabet picture book for children with visual impairments some months ago.
The book has each alphabet written with bubble-like dots of the Braille script alongwith 3D-like tactile images of related words.
For example, the word A for Apple will have a tactile image of the fruit which will help children with visual impairments experience the object in print.
The idea is to allow learning among the visually impaired as well as those with low vision.
The books also aim to improve the literacy rate among the visually impaired in India.
