Delhi University makes efforts to make campus accessible for the disabled
June 28, 2017
The Delhi University is providing high-tech mobile phones with special applications for visually impaired students.
Students with disabilities are also being provided with 'Plextalk', which is a pocket recorder with FM and a scanner.
The device helps students with disabilities to scan their academic books. Other than this, the University is providing many facilities to help improve their academic performance. A Java Programming tool for students with visual disabilities has already been installed in computers in several colleges. Ramps and tactile tracks have also been built in the campus of almost all colleges.
There is also an Equal Opportunity Cell (EOC) in the Arts faculty, which acts as a helping hand and makes sure that no discrimination takes place in the University on grounds of disability.
However, some disabled students say that the facilities are not being maintained well, and that there are not enough study materials available to them.
