Bravo Turk Telekom! Bravo GETEM from Bogazici University!

Dec 02

Türk Telekom started a new service called “Audio Books” with the help of GETEM from Boğaziçi University. It’s a service for visually-impaired people that reads hundreds of books when person called a specific phone number, which is 0800 219 91 91(for its commercial [1]). It’s a superb idea and superb work from GETEM and Türk Telekom. It’s socially responsible and very thoughtful project for humanity. I want to support both organizations in any means necessary on this project. Bravo Türk Telekom! Bravo GETEM from Boğaziçi University!
