Technology Support

Technology is essential in the learning process of people with visual impairment. The needs of people who are blind are different than those with low vision. 

People who are completely blind require equipment such as: computers, laptops, Braille reader software, screen reader programs and high tech canes for their orientation and mobility.

People with low vision require computers, laptops, Closed-Circuit television (CCTV), along other supporting equipment.

The main challenge we found in trying to utilize such technology in Egypt is that most of these equipment were made for English speaking visually impaired people, parents, teachers and caregivers. 

Future Goals

 ● Where possible, translating and adapting equipment to be suitable for Arabic speaking users.

 ● Developing new software and equipment suitable for Arabic speaking users for Egypt and other Arabic speaking countries.
