Nashik opens first talking library for blind students
January 13, 2017
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.
