Pablo Lecuona, an Argentinian with visual disability, introduces us to a digital library that has adapted hundreds of texts for the blind in Buenos Aires through a program supported by the UN.

Argentina: Digital Library for All

Through funding provided by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and in collaboration with Argentinian publishers, Tiflolibros, a digital library for the blind, has produced 800 educational books in Spanish. 

The books are for individuals who are blind or print disabled. Accessing books for the visually impaired was facilitated by the Marrakesh Treaty adopted in June 2013. Argentina was one of the States that adopted it.
