Blind people from Can Tho Association of the Blind and Tien Giang Association of the Blind have been trained in 2005
but the locations don't have adequate equipment.
Since the Distance Training Program was established, we installed computer rooms for member organizations, held conferences on
issues related to applying computer technology for visually impaired people, trained staff of member organizations
and visually impaired people assisted by member organizations.
All our activities focus on visual impairment, especially on using assistive technology.
In the partecipating locations there are about 40 computers that can access the Internet.
We want to create a system by which users can access material stored locally, can access material stored on the Program server,
or retrieve information directly from the Internet.
School students have a place where they can type and print their homework for their sighted teachers or access information not available in Braille-books.
Young and adults have tools for communicating, studying, listening to music, writing, reading or just playing a game.
Accessible computer access points are making a difference in the life and future of all the blind who learn how to use the system.
Training is free.
