Visually Impaired Students Learning on their Own
WHEELS team is happy to share with you that our collaborator have implemented a platform “SunKids” for Visually impaired at Poona School for Blind at Koregaon park. Where in Blind students can learn and sharpen their knowledge of Brail on their own without the help of Brail teacher. They need a sighted person to operate the system.
Initial response has been extremely encouraging, specially the smile on the faces of those young kids when they were using the platform. It is worth a lot.
Present technology which we observed in Blind center operated by United Ways in Atlanta also currently uses Tennis balls to teach Brail as can be seen in the picture. When it was demonstrated to the Brail teacher in Atlanta she was also very excited about it. So we feel very proud to bring new technology to fore to improve the quality of life of Special children.
