Hindi and English Speed Typing Competition using Assistive Technology for Students with Visual Impairment
- To generate interest in assistive technology within the visually impaired community.
- To motivate students with visual impairment to learn, practise and refine their Braille and assistive technology skills.
- To create a platform where these skills are rewarded and overtly acknowledged as indispensable and crucial to the independent living and functioning of people with visual impairment.
- The speed and accuracy aspect of the competition intends to encourage the students to develop the requisite skills to do their schoolwork, assignments, tests and exams independently using assistive technology.
- To prepare students with the technical skills that will enable them to become valuable members of the workforce in the future.
The rationale behind organizing this event is to sensitize the community and motivate the students to adopt the latest assistive technology solutions instead of depending on traditional Braille for their education.
