ACT Fibernet will also reward Master Sabari Venkat a 15-year-old student of class 11 with a DAISY installed laptop and printer.

The digital learning technology will be available to students of classes 11 and 12, studying in state as well as CBSE board schools.

ACT Fibernet (Atria Convergence Technologies Ltd) joined hands with the Tamil Nadu government to introduce the Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY). This technology would help the visually impaired students of classes 11 and 12 studying in CBSE and State board schools.

DAISY is a globally recognised software that converts a text from regular books into computerised content. The content can be easily accessed by the visually impaired students, thereby, allowing them to read the entire text independently, effortlessly and navigate between sentences.

Commenting on the initiative, Edappadi K. Palaniswami, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, said, “This is the first time that the syllabus of classes 11 and 12 of CBSE as well as state board schools are being converted into such as a format. The initiative would certainly enable students to study effortlessly, nourish their knowledge, help them keep pace with the present-day advancement and make them self-reliant.”

Speaking on the association, Bala Malladi, CEO, ACT Fibernet said, “In today’s world, it is important for every child to have access to digital education. This method of e-learning will certainly help our students to enhance their knowledge and give them the courage to explore new opportunities.”

ACT Fibernet will also reward Master Sabari Venkat a 15-year-old student of class 11 with a DAISY installed laptop and printer.
