Delivering fundamentals of science principles to visually impaired through audio described videos. Using audio described technology to enhance science teaching to visually impaired.

We have been able to provide a clear improvement in understanding of science subjects at local blind school and children have been motivated to use this method so as to improve their interest in science subjects.

}

Solution

Almost all blind schools lack a functioning accessible lab for teaching science. Most of these students drop science subjects after middle school due to various reasons. Audio description technology has so far been used for entertainment purposes for visually impaired We have successfully used this technology to explain complex principles of science to visually impaired friends by developing audio described videos of various fundamental principles of science.

Competitive Advantage

As of now blind students are dependent only on oral explanations or braille text. we have combined audio description with videos to help them visualise various experiments thereby significantly improving understanding the complex principles of science.
