Meet Nidhi, a 15-year old student living in northeastern India. Nearly a decade ago, an accident caused the blindness that could have ended her education.
With the help of the Accessible Books Consortium (ABC), Nidhi and thousands of other Indians are benefiting from increased access to texts specially adapted to their needs.
And that is just one corner of the worldwide work undertaken by the ABC, a multi-stakeholder partnership supporting the goals of the Marrakesh "Books for Blind" Treaty by increasing the number of books around the globe in accessible formats such as braille, audio and large print.
