DIGITALIZATION OF TEXTBOOKS FOR BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED PUPILS!

Visually impaired pupils will be able to use the same textbooks as other pupils in the classroom. They may choose one of three forms (e-book, internet, Braille), which best fits their abilities and kind of impairment. Blind pupils will be able to use Braille, which significantly improves their language skills in both mother and foreign tongue.

Low-vision pupils will be able to enlarge the text as they need on a tablet, change color combinations of the text and background, etc. Blind students will read the text using a synthetic voice or Braille by simply moving a cursor across the text.

The projekt "E-books for blind and visually impaired pupils" (reg. č. CZ.1.07/1.2.27/01.0004) is co-financed by the Europian Social Fund and the Czech Republic.

The project is realized by the non-profit organization BRAILCOM, o.p.s. together with ZŠ a MŠ Prof. V. Vejdovského.
