End date: 30/06/2008

Description: The aim of this project is to make available a free screen reader for blind and visually impaired people in Europe and, in an extensive dissemination campaign, distribute it directly to the target group. In addition, blind and visually impaired tutors will be trained in the project; they will then be able to support blind people in implementing and using the screen reader and solve problems. Tutor training will, partially, be done via an e-learning application. It will be essential for the free screen reader to be compatible with the new Microsoft operating system Vista to make it accessible for the target group.
