The nonprofit online magazine Albawtaka Review is translating and recording English audio books into Arabic for Egypt’s blind: Daily News

Assuming they won’t make high profits, publishing houses have long neglected producing audio versions for books and novels. Salah Edin’s project is dedicating to remedying the shortage of books available to the blind by producing about 10,000 recordings.

For this project, titled “Not Chick Lit: Stories by Ordinary Women in and Beyond Turmoil”, Salah Edin selected stories that explore contemporary humans’ socially-constructed dilemmas, she said, opening a window to women and their challenges in the 21st century, their worlds and their perspectives.
