Facility for Visually Challenged Users

Vikram Sarabhai Library has added special facilities for the visually challenged users in order to assist them in accessing library resources.

The facilities include the JAWS Talking Software, Keyboard and SARA CE Book Scanner.

JAWS (Job Access With Speech) converts your computer into a talking computer. It reads out all the matter that is on the computer's screen through your computer's speakers/ headphones, thus enabling a visually challenged person to use the computer independently and work on all MS Windows applications.

SARA CE, a Stand Alone Instant Text Reader is a scanning and reading device. It is a simple text reading machine for those who are not comfortable with computers but still need to read printed books and materials. All that the user needs to do is simply place the text on the unit and SARA CE instantly reads out the contents aloud in a clear Indian accent voice and even magnifies the text, object, diagram, picture to be viewed.

JAWS and SARA CE have been installed on the first two computers at the e-resource lab of the library. Users can make use of the same and in case of any assistance, please contact the library staff.
