October 11, 2017
Generally, disabled students find it difficult to navigate public spaces in colleges and educational institutes due to the inaccessible infrastructure.
However, students with disabilities at Delhi University's Indraprastha College for Women have many reasons to enjoy. It is because the college has been providing many accessible facilities for disabled students since 2013.
The entrance of the college has tactile tracks, which provides the visually impaired students the required help to move around in the college on their own.
Different ramps have also been set up for students with physical disability using wheelchairs. The college also provides three wheelchairs, out of which one is used by the medical room for emergencies.
The officials have made sure that visually impaired students get access to computers with special Braille software. It is a software that helps the blind use the computer without any guidance. The canteen of the college also provides special Braille menus for the visually impaired students.
