Students making a difference: The next generation of accessibility


I just read this wonderful article about a team effort between Purdue University students and students at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI). Purdue engineering students in the university’s EPICS program, a program devoted to helping meet community needs, are working with ISBVI’s high school students to improve education for those with visual impairments or blindness.

Projects they’re currently working on include a device that turns braille writing into text so that teachers can review work a student as done in the format they’re used to and provide feedback more readily.

These students are doing truly important work. With projects like theirs, AWARE and other technological advancements being made for those with visual impairments or blindness, we are on the path toward a leveled playing field. Well done, Purdue and ISBVI students.
