UIU takes a step to aid the visually impaired

United International University (UIU) along with Young Power in Social Action (YPSA), Bangladesh Visual Impaired Peoples Society (BVIPS), Access Bangladesh Foundation (ABF), Disability Rights Fund (DRF), Federation of DPOs Sitakunda and UIU Electrical and Electronics Club (UIUEEC) organised a seminar on “Scope of education for visually impaired people and facilitating access to published works” on September 19 at the UIU auditorium.

The main focus of the seminar was to create awareness on the current scenario regarding accessible books, publications and technology for people with visual and/or print disability.

UIU has also designed a refreshable digital display system for the visually impaired students which has been funded by the access to information wing (a2i) of the Prime Minister’s office.
