CUP partners up with Indian sight charity

<p>Cambridge University Press is to provide free content to an Indian charity, giving millions of readers with a visual impairment access to a range of educational materials.<br /><br />The academic publisher has signed an agreement with the Daisy Forum of India, a charity for the visually impaired. The Daisy forum turns books into digital content, which can be read aloud by special software in computers and laptops. CUP will allow the organisation to use the content in its books free of charge.<br /><br />Manas Saikia, managing director of Cambridge University Press India, said: &quot;Having a visual impairment can affect quality of life and it can also significantly reduce people&rsquo;s exposure to decent educational materials. </p><p>&quot;By donating Cambridge content, we are doing our bit to help change this problem, whilst also increasing people&rsquo;s access to some excellent products.&quot;</p>
