Internet service provider ACT Fibernet on Tuesday joined hands with Tamil Nadu government to introduce Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) for the visually impaired students of Class 11 and 12, the company said.

The digital learning technology will be made available to students of Class 11 and 12 across State and CBSE boards in partnership with Karna Vidya Foundation, and intends to empower students and enable them to overcome challenges through smart technology-oriented education.

"In today's world, it is important for every child to have access to digital education to make the best use of opportunities that the modern economy offers. We are deeply committed to provide the same in every possible manner," Bala Malladi, CEO, ACT Fibernet said in a statement.

"This modern method of e-learning will certainly help our students to enhance their knowledge and give them the courage to explore new opportunities."

DAISY Software is a globally recognized format that converts text from regular books into computerized content which can be easily accessed by the visually impaired students.

It allows students to read full text independently, effortlessly navigate between sentences, thereby making it easy for the students to learn the subject more efficiently.

"We are extremely happy to bring advanced digital learning technology to our visually challenged students," said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami.

"This will certainly enable them to study effortlessly, nourish their knowledge, help them keep pace with the present-day advancement and overall make them self-reliable," he added.
