‘The Path of Abai’ novel was translated into a Braille writing system

‘The Path of Abai’ novel was translated into a Braille writing system. The presentation took place in Oskemen. The project is dedicated to the 175th anniversary of the great Kazakh poet and educator.  Staff of the East Kazakhstan Regional Special Library for Blind and Visually Impaired Citizens said that due to specificity of the relief-dot font, one page grew into three. Thus, four volumes turned into 21 books. Previously, Abai’s Words of Edification was also published in the Braille alphabet. Librarians plan to publish a collection of Abai’s poems.
