Still visually challenged students of India have poor performance in formal education in colleges and universities. The main reason behind this is unawareness among students and academicians about the potential use of assistive technology in education. The students have to depend on others for their study and other educational activities because they lack knowledge of use of assistive devices. The basic objective of introduction of the course is to increase accessibility of overall educational system to visually challenged students by training them for the use of computer as all course material can easily be available in electronic format.
