Until recently, blind or partially blind students in Kenya were still using Braille books for their studies. The Braille system uses bumps to represent words on pages. Blind people can learn to feel these bumps and recognize words. But Kenyan schools for the blind are now beginning to use technology that provides material in an audible form. This has taught students new ways to interact with technology. Seventeen-year-old Lucas Mwanzia is visually impaired. For the last two years, he has been attending computer classes at the Thika School for the blind. Mwanzia started school at a later age because of his vision. But using the new technology, he can search the Internet for biology class. The technology also has decreased his costs. He says Braille books are expensive but there is little or no cost to virtual books. The school started using assistive technology six years ago. It permits blind and visually-impaired students to get information from computers and iPads. Thika teacher Zachary Muasya has been helping students learn how to use the technology for about two years now. He says the technology presents opportunities that can level the playing field for his students. The assistive technology costs $1,000 for a school to put in place. But a non-governmental organization, an NGO, called InAble has provided it to the schools at no cost. Four out of Kenya’s 11 schools for the blind have adopted the technology. Inable says it will provide funding for the remaining schools to join the effort.
