Computer centers for visually impaired use special software “JAWS” for all communities. With correct training, there is a wide scope of employment opportunities available for the visually impaired. Action is one of the computer centers for visually impaired that goes over and beyond for learners who reside in rural and urban areas.
Now the visually impaired can become independent and not only rely on donations and grants. They can now reach new heights in various fields of commerce and industry. One sure way is through computer training and skills.
We train over 20 students every six months to gain skills in computer software so that they can embark into the employment world. This is a sure fire way to provide those in rural areas a chance to become skilled in computers. We hope to increase the visually impaired students social status through technology skills.
We provide community subsidized training in Roodepoort. Our classrooms are accessible and adapted to suit all forms of disability. Computers are changing at a fast pace with speed and adaptive methods. Access technology allows users to use the computer as they require. A screen magnifier increases images and fonts on the screen while reading text on the screen.
Software makes computers accessible to users who are blind and visually impaired and has been around for many years. The computer is even built into the devices we use daily, such as:
- Windows computers
- Mac computers
