Recording Studio for Blind Opens at Tehran University

A recording studio to produce audio books for the blind and visually impaired students was inaugurated at the central library of the University of Tehran, on Wednesday, October 14, on the eve of the international White Cane Day.
Established and equipped by Shahnaz Charity Foundation, the ‘Media Studio’ as a subsection of the Central Library and the Archive Center of the University of Tehran, will address the needs of the blind and visually impaired students who have little access to the mass resources of the library and good quality audio books, IBNA reported.
Habib Maydanchi, chairman of the charity’s board of trustees said the studio will operate like a special library and is to be a free audio media center for the blind. “Audio books will soon be available through the official website of the Central Library,” he said.
To draw attention to the project, a campaign in cyber space has started inviting artists and those interested in reading and recording books for the blind to take part in the philanthropic gesture.
Head of the Central Library and Archives of Tehran University Ali-Asghar Pour-Ezzat and prominent media management figure, also known as Iran’s father of management, Ali-Akbar Farhangi attended the ceremony.
White Cane Day is observed on October 15 every year since 1964. As an awareness-raising event it aims to celebrate the achievements of the blind or visually impaired and acknowledge and pay tribute to the long white cane, a critically important mobility tool and potent symbol of independence.
