Bookshare Report for January 21

  • The India team of Bookshare is glad to announce that we have started our Onsite trainings from January 21. Our interventions focused on providing Onsite trainings to Teachers of the Victoria Memorial School for the Blind – Mumbai and Shivarimal Blind School – Saputara. The 3 day training schedules was specially designed to provide basic training to the sighted and blind teachers of both the organizations in use of Assistive Technology. We are proud to state that both the trainings were extremely well received by the teachers and at the end of the 3 days, the teachers were able to use their android devices to read titles from Bookshare and also create Reading Lists for their students. The Onsite and Off-line support shall continue in the coming months.


  • January also saw a record number of Math and Science textbooks created in accessible formats. These textbooks are for grades 7th to 12th for NCERT and grades 5th to 12th for Maharashtra board, English medium. We encourage organizations to disseminate this information amongst their members and help spread awareness about these accessible STEM content.


  • Ghana – Africa has become the latest country where Bookshare has tied up with the local organization. Our partnership with the Ghana Blind Union has given an opportunity the members of GBU to become members of Bookshare for Free. Trainings for use of our vast resources will be provided in the coming month to our new friends.
