    Braille ??

    I'm in need of Thai books in Braille.

    Any subject any age.

    They are for a blind 13 year old girl who has been abused.

    She is very bright and avidly soaks up information from these books but has exhausted the supply in the local education service.

    Any "talking books" again in Thai would also be much appreciated.

    If you know where I can buy such things please let me know.

    Thanks
    And Relax.........

    I'm sure you could download some audio books in Thai. Have a search on some of the torrent sites.

    Not directly related, but may be of help. Consider getting a Thai TTS (Text-to-Speech) program. That way she can access many resources, e.g. Thai Wikipedia.

    Have you tried SE Ed?

    TD won't let me post the link, but it is www SE - ED Dot Com.. The Website is in Thai, but they translate lots of English books (high quality like Dorling Kindersley, etc) and since they are educational they may have, or know where to find talking books and braille..

    Here are locations - not sure how up to date - I recall there is one in the basement of Fortune Town (Rachada Pisek - downstairs B level in the IT-type mall attached to Tesco) - the rest I found on the Web - not sure if up to date

    Pantip Plaza
    Silom Complex
    Silom Road
    The Mall
    Central City Bang Na

    Try calling the Bangkok School for the Blind. 420 Ratchawithi Road. Tel: 0-2354-7509. They might have some ideas. Can't vouch that the phone number is current.
