The "Asia Pacific Youth Summit for the Blind" is a special event co-organized by the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI), and Resources for the Blind, Inc. (RBI), with sponsorship from The Nippon Foundation. Last year, we were glad to have three representatives from Vietnam attending the summit.
Recorded webinar with transcript for both presentation and Q&A sessions is available below. The webinar was hosted by the DAISY Music Braille project and Sao Mai Center for the Blind on: Thursday 17 March 2022, 10:00-11:30 UTC.
Webinar Invitation: Introduction to music Braille transcription using the Sao Mai Braille software for blind musicians and transcribers
Participants will get a quick tour of the main Braille translation features of Sao Mai Braille (SMB), with a more detailed demonstration of how to transcribe music scores into Braille using SMB. In addition, in the Q&A session we will be able to answer your specific questions about the translation tool.
With hope to open up equal opportunities in learning for the disadvantaged, promote positive role models and boost young’s people motivation to achieve success, Sao Mai Center is now calling for applications from all qualified candidates. To all individuals/organisations for the blind, please share this information to your friends and partners.
Introducing two new software developed by Sao Mai: the Sao Mai Typing Tutor (SMTT) for both new computer learners/teachers to improve typing skills/manage students' keyboard learning activities; and the Sao Mai Braille (SMB), a rich-text editor + Braille translation program.
From July 23-26, Sao Mai just hosted an advanced training on producing accessible EPUB3 and DAISY materials for 9 participants coming from different organizations for/of the blind based in HCM.
Communication plays an important role in our lives. It is the bridge between people. It connects individuals to create a civilized and developed society. However, to have a perfect communication process, each person should have certain skills.
