Top Delhi college sets up signage for students with visual impairments
May 11, 2017
Miranda House, one of New Delhi's best known residential colleges for women, has become the first college under the Delhi University to become accessible for visually challenged students.
The college has 70 visually challenged students and it has started the use of signages across the campus. These digital vision signages are made of QR code acrylic sheets.
Students have to use a special phone app that gets activated within three feet of the code and speaks out the location and its information.
For instance, if a student is near a door signage, it will be sensed by the app and give out a warning about the glass door and the number of steps that need to be taken to reach it.
Teachers are also helping the students with the app download and its use.
