A digital audio book library for visually impaired

Bengaluru: Samarthanam Trust for Disabled started in 1997 has 5,000 audio books to help print-disabled students and provides facilities, technology, and support to disabled and underprivileged students. A digital studio was set up in 2008, where printed books are converted to audio format, enabling students to listen to them using MP3 players on mobile phones and laptops using screen-reading software. The visionary initiative of Mahantesh G K, who lost his sight to typhoid at just six months, has digitised tests of 1st to 12th standard texts of the state board and some varsity texts also. It can be downloaded from their site. 400 volunteers work with the organisation on a regular basis.
