More Jazzed up Braille Cards and a Brand New Catalog for CLABIL

Phew! We have been very very busy at Esha.

We jazzed up our festive braille cards - Thank You, Season's Greetings, Happy Diwali.. we went from Golden Bows to pink bouquet effect (tiny ones) and we even used decorations based on quilling!

Given that the cards are white and tend to stain easily, we put each one in its own packaging to ensure it stays white and nice.

On Tuesday, a friend will give us some space to display the cards, and we hope that we will be able to sell some. You can wish us luck.

On CLABIL, we have been cleaning up a LOT. Almost 25 hours of cleaning up later, we are only halfway through. Some content has been deleted for the first time, a lot of Read Fest content needs to be catalogued and added. We have added a new column - Size, so that the user can decide whether the file is too large for them to download on their current connection. This is based on user feedback we have got multiple times. Thank you to everyone who gave us this gyaan.

With a heavy heart, we acknowledge the fact that our much loved crowdsharing  platform for the VI community -, will never go back to being what it was. For a long time now, I have hoped that the folks at the center are able to resolve the hosting issues, but apparently, that is not to be.

Accordingly, we will be removing the partner content from inclusive and all files from that url will now be removed. It is a very sad decision, but we have waited really long.

We hope that someone revives some day and restores it to its former glory.

That's it at our end.. for now. Pictures later.
