Amazing things ANKITA's made
According to WHO, about 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide, 90% of whom live in low income settings. Out of these,19 million are children under the age of 15 years. Still literacy rate of the visually impaired people in India is just 25% and employment rate is 40%.Visually Impaired Children lack far behind sighted children in terms of learning and adapting to new things. They have very limited options in terms of learning material and recreational activities. Braille has served as a great alternative for text but there is no such alternative for diagrams and pictures. We are trying to make diagrams accessible for the visually impaired users through technological interventions. Our product, a mobile based multimodal book for visually impaired children aims to assist them in perception and cognition development by sensitizing them about different concepts in their environment so that their inclusion in the education ecosystem is speeded up.
