With Existing Methods

It takes one student one full year to learn basics of braille literacy (reading, writing, typing) under constant supervision.


Constant teacher supervision and handholding

ancient methods

Primitive methods that result in slow learning

no interactive content

Non-interactive content keeps the students disinterested and unmotivated

Unfavorable teacher student ration leads to inadequate supervision.

Students take longer to become braille literate.

For Guardians

  • Lack of Awareness
  • There's a shortage of special educators
  • Guardians are unable to participate in the learning and development of the child

For Governments

  • The increase in SEN budgets is not proportional to the growth of number of pupils with high needs
  • Training and hiring special educators to plug the gap is both expensive and time taking
