New activity: Sharing Session of Garden of Heart

This year, TDTB held a new activity of Sharing Session of Garden of Heart.  on the website of TDTB, we got a section of recording beautiful articles: Garden of Heart. For years, TDTB gathered many beautiful articles, those are enlightened and meaningful articles.  Now there are more than 100 articles in the section of Garden of Heart.  We hoped that people can share their feelings and feedback about the Garden of Heart.  In this case, TDTB held a  Sharing Session.  Visually impaired people in Taiwan can join this sharing session, it's a wonderful chance to share feelings and feedbacks. more information:

Recording of Daisy Books

From June to August, TDTB has finished one book named Mendel, the Father of Genetics.    This book is the biography of a outstanding scientist, Mendel.  The topics of our DAISY books include Literature, Traditional Custom, Education, Novel, Life philosophy, Children Book, and so on.   We also started to record many children books from July.  There will be more than twenty books in the end of this year.  Visually impaired people can join our member for free.  And members of this DAISY platform can download our daisy books on the platform:  We believe our books can give the visually impaired more information.

Volunteer Training

We have accomplished a volunteer training course, which is about DAISY book production. TDTB cooperate with a world-wide company in Taiwan: UPS.   UPS plays a leading role of enabling commerce around the world.  TDTB sent two teachers to UPS Taipei branch, and there were about 50 employees in UPS attending this volunteer training.  In the training, teacher taught those volunteers how to make a DAISY book, including editing a document and making a table of contents.  At the end of the training class, most of volunteers want to make a DAISY book, and they felt happy to contribute their time and energy to help visually impaired people in Taiwan.
