“I am a person with complete vision impairment from a rural part of Assam. Because of financial constraints, I was not able to pursue my dream of studying political science honors from Delhi. I didn’t have proper guidance and felt very hopeless. I got to know about HTBF working in our districts for supporting education of persons with vision impairment and HTBF helped me in getting admission in Cotton College. I enrolled myself in the Android Mobile workshop course under EI. I have definitely learnt a lot through this course such as using whats app for instantly communicating with my family, friends & others. I have also learnt to use composing emails and other interesting solutions/apps such as Be My Eyes, Kibo. This has certainly improved my confidence and enhanced my way of living. I am also happy to share that now I use gpay app on my mobile to recharge mine & my family’s phone bills”.
“I work with the Commercial tax department in AP and in my office, I am the only person with vision impairment (low vision). Training on google applications has enabled me to gain knowledge on a variety of internet related work such as google drive, google doc, google sheets & gmail. This has equipped me to apply my learnings from the training on various work assignments using google applications. I now get more work just like my sighted colleagues & feel more productive at my work place. I am also able to teach others on google applications. I feel more confident & efficient at work.
“I am a research scholar and as part of my research work I have to do lot of reading and note taking. Earlier I used to completely depend on braille to read and write. Later after enrolling in the Telugu Typing Course at EI, I started using laptop and I could use screen reader. Audio Tutorials shared by the Trainers before every session have immensely helped me in practicing my lessons. This Course has certainly enabled me in gaining speed & accuracy and complete my assignments in time.”
