Keeping in view with the needs of visually impaired aspirants, Delhi University (DU) has installed talking computer during admissions in 2009. Last year, DU introduced Braille form to help them.
Thirty three visually impaired students have already registered themselves for admission to DU this year. Now, with an added facility, DU aims to make the entire procedure more convenient for the visually impaired. They will be guided by counselor in filling up the forms.
According to Seema M. Parihar, deputy dean, students’ welfare, the talking computers were introduced in the admission process this year after it was realised during last year’s admissions that many visually-impaired candidates could not read Braille. Delhi University reserves 3% seats in every college for differently-abled.
