Rwandans Institutions have done little in terms of introducing the visually impaired segment of the population to technology, thus they are left behind and there is an obvious need to empower them through the use of the Internet. The project is going to establish an online audio library containing all education material currently used by visual impaired people. Books and all education materials will be converted into digital contents and hosted into an online database accessible to all recognized users. The users will be able to use provided contents through online streaming or downloading and storing on their smartphones or other audio digital devices. A new way of providing recorded homework will be introduced. Traditional classrooms will become digital classrooms as a result.
