“All I have learned, I learned from books.” Abraham Lincoln
On the occasion of 75th Independence day of India, we are glad to announce the launch of new initiative - Digital Book Library for the Blind & Print Disabled.
The goal of the project is to convert print material (books) into digital format (epub) so that they are accessible by all the blind and print disabled individuals across the globe. The e-books will be part of Sugamya Pustakalaya, India's first and largest online library for the blind - with more than 20,000 ebooks available in 17 languages.
Sugamya Pustakalaya is a collaborative effort of TCS, Daisy Forum of India and NIEPVD (National Institute for Empowerment of Persons with Visual Disabilities), Government of India to end the book famine faced by people with print disabilities.
This is a wonderful opportunity for all to get involved and make a difference in the life of all the visually challenged individuals.
