AT Solutions for Blindness

posted by Tiehan on June 30, 2013

 

To help an individual who is totally blind to perform the job duties or to study, an assistive technology solution typically includes a print reading system with a scanner, a screen reader for word processing, electronic communication and web access, an electronic note taker for taking notes and daily schedule management and optional Braille input and output devices.

For example, a college student who is totally blind may use an adaptive computer and communication system to perform reading, writing, taking class notes and taking exams.
