Interest in donating voices to Kawechan School for the Blind grows

Many people are interested in donating their recorded voices to Kawechan School for the Blind in Yangon’s Insein Township, according to a school official. Voice donors come as individuals or groups to read out the books they like or that are available at the school.
A donor’s reading is recorded, and the school plays it back for the students. “A donor shared their experience here, and it spread. The voice donation sessions are full for June, and there are only five days left in July. People come in one, two or a group. The appointment time is 9 am to 1 pm. It is aimed at enriching general knowledge of the students. We have a night library. We cannot buy books to read, and it isn’t easy to read them. So, we invite voice donors. Donors contribute by voice or by hand. They read out with heart, and listeners are willing to listen,” said a school official.
The donors have to audition their voices before being recorded. If the donor has a different Myanmar accent, the school is afraid that the students will not understand the text, so it will select the book to be reread. Interested voice donors can contact telephone numbers 09 32237848 and 09 253070585. — Thit Taw/ZN/ED
