National Archives to launch books in Braille


Abu Dhabi / WAM

The National Archives is exploring the possibility of launching Braille versions of its books on the history and heritage of the UAE. Majid Al Muhairi, Executive Director of the National Archives, sought cooperation with the Emirates Association for the Visually Impaired, EAVI, regarding this initiative during a reception for Adel Abdullah Al Zamar, President of EAVI.
The project began with printing three books in Braille, ‘Zayed: From Challenge to Union’, ‘Khalifa: Journey to the Future’, and ‘Qasr Al Hosn 1793 – 1966’.
“The National Archives’ concern with the visually impaired is a manifestation of its belief in importance of strengthening the role played by reading in shaping an individual’s personality,” said Al Muhairi.

The goal is to increase interaction with the community and help address the issues going on around them, in addition to cultivating knowledge and national culture,” said Al Muhairi.
