The article Accessible Books Consortium: Breaking Down Barriers to Accessibility in the April 2014 WIPO Magazine includes this quote from Vashkar:
"Building capacity in Bangladesh
Thanks to funds from the Government of Australia, the ABC is training staff at Young Power in Social Action (YPSA), a non-governmental organization based in Bangladesh, in accessible format publishing technologies to expand the range of educational materials available to print disabled students at the University of Chittagong. The initiative is 'a giant leap' notes YPSA's Vashkar Bhattacharjee. 'For the first time in the history of Bangladesh, we are making study materials available in accessible format [in Bengali] for visually impaired students studying in higher secondary level,' he said. Students are also very excited about the prospect of having access to a Bengali dictionary in accessible format in the near future."
