In collaboration with the KhonKaen School for the Blind and the Educational Technology Center for The Blind, in Khon Kaen, the KKU Library has ensured that students, scholars, and the general public with visual impairments or blindness have equal access to learning resources. This is achieved through the production of audiobooks, an effective learning medium tailored for the visually impaired or those with limitations in vision, ensuring equal access to knowledge for lifelong learning.


The recognition received by the KKU Library underscores its commitment to inclusivity and accessibility in education, contributing significantly to the empowerment and education of visually impaired individuals in Thailand.
