The School of Media & Communication has taken upon itself, as a part of its social responsibility, to record poems for the National Association for the Blind’s (NAB - Delhi) Accessible Digital Library project, "Your Voice, Their World".
The project, sponsored by OMRON India, aspires to extend support to strengthen ‘accessible content’, infrastructure and the right technology for visually impaired students. The School believes that the sea of talent and golden hearts at Manipal Dubai Campus can go a long way in helping secure a rightful destiny for all younger generation alike.
The school’s faculty & students appeal to its extended family members to come forward and join us in creating this ‘accessible content’ for our print-challenged brethren.
You can find a database of poems (in English or Hindi) at: http://yourvoicetheirworld.com/poems/directory.
You can select any poem of your choice and we will record it for the NAB. It is suggested that you read the poems and identify any one of your choice. The more familiar you are with the poem, the better will be your delivery before the microphone.
The recording sessions are being organized on Sunday, 30th March’14 through Wednesday, 2nd April’14 during regular college working hours. You may choose any of the convenient time slots mentioned below. The school will not be in a position to record more than 10 volunteer voices per slot of two hours. In case, there be a large number of volunteers then ‘first come – first recorded’ rule will be followed.
Sunday, 30th March 2014: 12 o’clock to 2 o’clock Session
Monday, 31st March 2014: 10 o’clock to 12 o’clock Session
