Blind students at Miranda House use QR Codes to reach class
Miranda House in Delhi University (DU) has started an initiative to make the campus accessible for the visually impaired students.
The college has installed digital talking signages in important locations to help blind and visually impaired students to reach their classes, move around easily and independently using an app on their smartphones.
The app scans the QR codes and sends out a verbal message with location details to the blind students.
The college also holds proper training for new visually impaired students to use the app and the QR codes.
Initiatives like these can be done across the DU campus to make the whole university accessible to the blind students.
