Summary: Main objective of the project is to provide accessible reading material in audio format to people with any kind of visual disability (from low vision and complete blindness to people at risk of losing vision with time) from economically backward and marginalized communities to promote education.

As part of it with the support of funds received through GlobalGiving project we are planning to produce 24 audio books in a quarter. We are yet to receive required funds to produce books as per plan.

 Activities covered at Mitra Jyothi under the project are listed below: Convert to Audio format and save master audio copy.

  1. Read and record books.
  2. Edit it for corrections.
  3. Add breaks wherever necessary to indicate paragraph, chapters and other logical breaks as per book requirement.
  4. Convert to MP3 and DAISY formats.
  5. Copy to a CD and post to students across Karnataka.
