EAVIC helped in establishing an ICT Lab in Addis Ababa to train visually impaired individuals in ICT.  The lab currently is equipped with computers operating on Windows platform and include the JAWS software assisting the blind people. Training is imparted to visually impaired individuals on various operations such as checking email, performing various word/excel operations and browsing the internet. 


Future of the Lab

EAVIC is primarily looking to add more computers and expand the capacity of the lab. In addition, EAVIC plans to add iPhones and iPads which are equipped with Voice Assist apps. We see the shift to mobile and smartphone taking place in Ethiopia in the next 5 years and this initiative will help the visually impaired move along with technology.
