NCERT to publish tactile books for visually challenged

Though the National Institute for the Visually Handicapped has Braille books and special maps are available, this marks the first foray of the NCERT into tactile books with maps and diagrams,” said M. Balakrishnan, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the IIT. Official sources put the number of the visually challenged at three crores.
