Education and employment is not possible without reading. Most of the reading material is produced as printed letters which cannot be read by persons with blindness or low vision. Talking books and Talking magazines are a very important means for bringing the printed world to the visually impaired. Since we are catering to various regional requirements, this needs to be done in many Indian Languages in spite of the predominance of the English Language. These books can be used in different formats viz audio cassettes and CD recordings.
Recording in Digital Access Information System known as (DAISY), provides a unique navigational system through which a reader can easily and quickly, access the material not only chapter wise, section wise or subsection wise, but also page wise. In other words he/she can reach the required heading/page/section almost effortlessly within no time. This system is economical as well as portable. These recorded books can be preserved for an unlimited period and can also be upgraded easily. These books are produced on CDs and can be read on mp3 players, mobile phones or on the computer. These can be transmitted over the internet too. The aim of the talking book Digital Library is to provide the full range of materials in DAISY format.

The job market is changing extremely rapidly too. Even with job reservations, persons with disabilities need to prove their abilities and potential to work as productively as any other person. Every aspirant of job has to face competitive examinations for admission in professional courses and for jobs themselves. This has resulted in increase demand for books and reading materials for current affairs and general knowledge about various disciplines to prepare for competitive examinations. The current infrastructure is not able to cope up with these demands.

Saksham trust is working in collaboration with the DAISY Forum of India. This forum has 67 member organizations from all over the country. This collaboration ensures that whichever books are produced by Saksham will not be duplicated by any other organization, and will be distributed to end users anywhere in the country free of cost.

We have completed the recording of all NCERT text books from class 9th to 12th both in English and Hindi medium. Besides NCERT books we are also focusing on various state board’s study materials.

Saksham trust is catering to the needs of 7,500 persons with print disability. In other words we are trying to reach out to those organizations entrenched in this special cause, spread over every nook and corner of this country.

Every year 300 to 350 new titles will be recorded in the library. These titles will include school and university textbooks both in English and Hindi medium. General interest books, including fiction, general awareness, current affairs magazine (which is in great demand) etc will also be continuously produced. Newspapers and current affairs magazines will be produced using synthesized voice and made available first time in accessible format to persons with blindness in the country.
