Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Accessible online library provided for free as a corporate social initiative
In 2016, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a multinational IT company, launched Access Infinity in India, an online platform that enables the conversion of published materials to accessible versions. Backed by the Government of India as a part of the Accessible India mission and with Daisy Forum of India, Access Infinity introduced an online accessible library for people with blindness, low vision, or print disabilities. In 2020 the library had 32,346 registered users, compared to 25,539 in 2018.
“Before, I had to get books recorded myself. Now, I’ve found huge collections for instant downloading.”
