Acceptability of synthesized audiobooks by the visually challenged student community
Srinandan Srinivasa is an undergraduate student intern from MES college, Bengaluru. Srinandan is very keen on understanding the utility of synthesised audio format as content delivery medium for visually challenged students. Using a carefully chosen set of synthesized audio clips generated using Madhuravāchaka, Srinandan is piloting a student questionnaire survey to understand how structural annotations (page number indication, heading level indication, etc.,) that are added to audiobooks useful for the students. Further, he is also testing how description of schematics and figures in textbooks be described for visually challenged. Apart from his undergraduate course and internship, Srinandan is interested in photography, volunteering and is interested in neurosciences.
