Initiative: Digital Accessible Information System
Organisation: Young Power in Social Action
Article 17 of the Constitution of Bangladesh talks about free, compulsory and inclusive education for its citizens. As a result, lots of visually impaired students are now studying in schools, colleges and universities and this number is increasing every year, but they are facing a severe lack of accessible study materials. YPSA, with the support of A2I (Access to Information Program), Government of Bangladesh, has produced DAISY- Digital Multimedia Books, accessible E-books, Digital Braille Books and math books for the students of class I to X. In Bangladesh, total number of users for DAISY Multimedia Books is around 150,000.
