Computer Training Centre for the Blind was started in January 2008 to educate the Visually Challenged Children & adults in the field of computers so that they become a part of information revolution. Under this project students are trained to use the computers as any other normal person does. JAWS , screen-reading software is used to teach the visually impaired people to work on the computers. Students can work on MS office and Internet without any problem.
Training is offered free of cost. Students can also use computers as a tool to download all their reading materials. Apart from this, we also train the students so as to pursue a career in the field of Computer technology.
Computer applications and operation has become possible for them with the software Job Access with Speech (JAWS). This software allows the content on the screen to be read out to our visually disabled students and thereby allows them to "read" the screen.
At present we have six computers, one scanner and one printer all of which have been part of donations made towards the Organization.
Trained 10 blind adults.
30 blind children being taught basic skills.
