I am delighted to invite all of you in of my research outcome of producing machine translated Braille book for the first time in Bangladesh. I am happy that my students from MIST (Military Institute of Science and Technology) implemented my idea of doing this machine translation of Bangla. You will be surprised to know that our visually disabled friends are having almost no book for their studies despite the fact that they are human being and they have all the rights that we have. I picked this research in 2009 while I attended a ceremony in Shilpakala Academy. The students of MIST was guided by me to conduct as well as make this work as what we see today.
I very happy to share that I have received many calls last weeks from all the supported institutions working for the visually disabled people. We are in the more widen research of this product and we have planned to give this as free to all the publishers. Besides, we have another two international publications in the meantime.
Please make yourself convenient to attend this function at 5:00pm in the main venue of Book Fair on 27 February 2011 and keep your best wishes as well.
