NGO Om Sai Welfare Assocation for the Blind and Disabled has started the first 'Talking Library' at Nashik.
The library has three types of services - books based on digital accessible information system (DAISY), books recorded in MP3 format and e-books that can be read with the talk-back software.
It has textbooks from Class 10 to different post-graduate courses available in MP3 format.
The library also has trained volunteers who will provide on-demand facility for blind students.
The idea is to maintain a digital record of various books to make them available for free.
