Speech by Md. Arifur Rahman

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 school, college, universities and this number is increasing every year, but they are facing severe lack of accessible study materials.

YPSA, with the support of Access to Information (a2i) program, Government of Bangladesh has produced DAISY Digital Multimedia Talking Books, Accessible e-books, Digital Braille Books and math books for the student of class I to X. In Bangladesh, total number of users for DAISY Multimedia Books around 15,000.
