India: Cyber space for the visually impaired

Chennai based NGO (non-government organization) has set up an Internet centre for visually challenged people to use cyber space for free. A 36 years old Govind Krishnan, who is partially blind had developed the organization five years ago.

This is only centre in the country, where visual challenged people can walk and browse Internet free of charge. Sify has provided unlimited Internet access to the centre. The centre has Job access with speech (JAWS) facility, an audio based software, which allows the visually challenged to use computers at will.
