Association buys braille alphabet printing house
Morocco, Culture, 5/31/2003
The Alawite Organization for visually-impaired people has acquired of late a Braille alphabet printing house, said on Thursday Morocco's second TV channel 2M.
Thanks to this technology, Braille alphabet books will be made more available. The printing of a 400-page Braille alphabet book used to take no less than six months, said the source. "The pace can now amount to 50 pages per minute."
The state-of-the-art technique, acquired thanks to the funding of foreign institutions, will be generalized to all the educational institutions for visually-impaired persons in the Kingdom and will help the Education department fight illiteracy among this social category, the same source went on.
