These help disabled visitors navigate through the facility without needing an escort all the time. Easy, quick way to make a place accessible to the disabled. Esha Tactile Maps can be used in all kinds of disability. We can make them, or we can teach you how to make them. Simple, eco friendly products.

And their words.. : .. And their words.. I really think everyone should get this done. Everyone. Jawed Habib There is instant recognition and importance to an otherwise simple card as it communicates your human side. Maithreyi Venkatraman (Entrepreneur, Knowledge Advisor, and Esha’s first customer. She still gets her cards Braille enabled as a rule. ) The whole process from initial contact to receiving the cards was efficient. I feel very nice using such cards braille enabling is admirable work.You are doing a great job [but you already know that! - Kapil Marwaha, Entrepreneur Customer Speak(III) : Customer Speak(III) "My small venture is in a developing industry and it takes quite some time to establish trust and rapport with prospective customers. In my business meetings, just handing out these cards gets people warmed up and I can feel a goodwill established. They are excellent ice-breakers. I had got my cards brailled only to ensure that I don't exclude anyone from knowing about my business. Now I find this additional benefit of establishing a human bond with the card receivers instantly, irrespective of their visual abilities! Thank you very much and keep the great work going!" - Venkat Kandaswamy, Founder, Just before and after giving the card, there is a mental high. Getting Braille done on my cards has raised my self esteem. Siddhartha Barthakur, Ashoka Braille Enabled cards started out for us because we really thought it was a superb idea. Over this period, the experience with Esha and with Braille cards has been consistently strengthened by the positive experience we have had - with both. We sincerely hope that more and more corporates in India are able to make use of this service because inclusive communication and inclusive spaces, really, should be elementary to any business. - Amit Gopal, Vice President, India Life Customer Speak (II) : Customer Speak (II) Being access consultants, the decision to get our visiting cards Braille enabled was natural; however the challenge was to make sure that the card retains its visual appeal while being embossed with Braille, a constraint we felt with most Braille printers. After frantically looking for options on the internet, I came upon the link to “Esha – the Braille place”and found out about the Braille printing service it had to offer. On contacting Nidhi at Esha, I was directed to Chandrashekhar or Chandru as he is fondly called. Chandru who is visually impaired, and an expert with Braille offered to print my visiting cards and since I was traveling to Bangalore (where he lives) I decided to meet him before I gave him a small quantity of 600 to start with. Besides being the most humble person, I found him to be a true professional when it came to his job. He not only made all the effort to visit me and understand how I really wanted them to be printed, but also showed me some samples that made me more confident about his work. He effortlessly printed each one of them by hand using a Braille typewriter and delivered them before the promised time, and it may sound clichéd but the cards came out classier than ever. The story so far is that I have got all visiting cards for my organization printed in Braille, and every time I pass on my card to someone it not only acts as an ice breaker, but also helps me spread a little awareness about how this small effort is making a huge difference to the lives of persons with visual impairment. My visiting cards have been able to convince a lot of people on the importance of Braille and more importantly helped me to connect better with a lot of people including visually impaired persons, who appreciate the visiting card that I hand them now, instead of the one that I used to carry earlier. The way I see it, my cards were just a piece of silent stationery, but now after getting Braille on them, they do the talking. - Sachin Verma , Access Ability Beneficiary Speak : Beneficiary Speak Esha made me financially independent. It helped strengthen our family’s finances bcs my family has 3 visually disabled persons out of 4. I don’t have a father and earning is not easy. With Esha’s money, we conducted our sister’s marriage and also constructed our own house. I also could finance my own marriage with Esha money. I learnt the skill of business. Esha work is after office hours. So whenever I find time, I can work on Esha. I learnt business skills – how to manage customers, how to talk, how quality and time to deliver is very important. Now I am encouraging others also to learn and become independent like me. My brother already does a lot of work with me. In December, 2009, on my own, I started doing labeling stickers for buildings. I earned around 10,000 rupees from this new product in one month alone! I am hoping that more companies will want these cheap and easy to do labels.
