Technology is essential in the learning process of VIPs. The needs of people who are blind are different from 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 with other supporting equipment.
The main challenge in utilizing such technology in Egypt is that most of the equipment was made for English-speaking VIPs, parents, teachers, and caregivers.
- Where possible, translating and adapting equipment to be suitable for Arabic-speaking users.
- Developing new software and equipment suitable for Arabic-speaking users in Egypt and other Arabic-speaking countries.
