10 Hour 'Digitization Marathon' on 28 November 2017

Over a 100 students from classes VIII to X supported by teachers participated in a digitization marathon to convert scanned books into readable format that can be accessed by screen reading softwares.
This novel idea by Ms. Anubhuti Bhattacharya , the Project Manager  was to promote inclusiveness and accessibility of the visually challenged .The task involved converting scanned books in JPEG format into readable  format of Google Docs. The editing of these docs was done by five student teams wherein they corrected spelling mistakes, inserted images, correct headlines etc.
Each page was then sent to quality check team which finally sent them to the compilation team.
Finally the book was rendered in a format  which can be easily read by visually challenged students using a software .
The students were well supported by 'NAB' and 'Saksham' in this endeavour.
They  managed to convert 1369 pages by 6:30 PM when the session ended.

This was a historical day for all Tagoreans.
