​IN an informal event held at the campus of Jagriti School for Blinds Alandi, Ritu Nathani, director of Cybage, handed over the braille version of Class X English Digest to the tenth standard students of the school.

As many as 20 volunteers from the different departments of Cybage worked on the project of moulding the digest under Braille protocols. They made the Braille-friendly soft copy in the duration of 4 months, which was printed in the mini Braille press located in the campus of the school.

Nathani congratulated the volunteers for their hard work and appreciated dedication shown by them for the cause. Sakina Bedi, advisor, Jagriti School for Blind girls thanked Cybage for extending the hand of help.

“For visually challenged students very limited reading material is available. Students have to depend on text books. Extra English reading would enhance their reading and spelling abilities,” she said.

A class 10 student of Jagriti School, Dipmala said, “studying with the help of audio records is very boring job. Sometimes we also fall asleep while listening to it. This book has enabled us to study whenever we want.” Suhas Darekar an employee of Cybage and who was a part of Volunteers team said that it the they worked whenever they got time from the office work. “It was students who inspired us,” he said.
