Talking Book Project & Recording Studio

TopThe Talking Book Project

The Talking Book Project involves the transfer of academic texts and reference materials into audio CDs through reading and recording by sighted persons.

Our society is actively involved in this project. We have largely depended on volunteers to come and record the texts so that they can be converted into audio CD’s for use by the visually challenged.

Our primary aim is to convert vernacular (Bengali) texts into audio CD’s since these are hard to come by and through this we hope to aid and facilitate the education of many more visually challenged students in Bengal.

The texts are recorded at our in-house studio – Trinayan, and at the Special Education Wing in the Jadavpur University campus.

Till date 17 texts comprising of novels, plays and poetry have been recorded into audio CDs.

We are always looking for volunteers who can come and help us further our cause by donating a little of their time to come and read and record texts and thus enable us to build our digital library of academic texts and reference materials for use by the visually challenged.

TopRecording Studio

TRINAYAN – our in house recording studio — inaugurated on the 14th of December, 2007, was sponsored by the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC). It has enabled us to vastly improve the quality of recordings in the Talking Book project and all studio time is at present dedicated to The Talking Book Project recordings.
