Assistive technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with visual disabilities. We provide Perkins Braillers and Orbit Readers to blind/visually impaired learners in school in order to enable blind learners to read and write in Braille. We regularly review the need for Braille assistive devices in countries that we serve. The current ratio of Brailler machines to learners with visual impairment is 1:3. Our target is to change this ratio to 1:1 ensuring that every blind learner has access to a Braille assistive device. We also review innovative technology and evaluate effectiveness and affordability for those whom we serve including ‘smart’ devices specifically designed for the visually impaired which can provide a ‘quantum leap’ in such assistive devices for Africa.
