Visually challenged teachers use free software
The union human resources development ministry has lauded the general education department of Kerala for training visually challenged teachers in using free software under the leadership of IT@School project.
According to union HRD secretary, Anshu Vaish, Kerala is the first state to succeed in the initiative. The state through its IT training has not only empowered the blind to make their profession easier but also has helped them with their daily routines. The attempt to bring the differently abled persons to the mainstream is a model for other states.
