There’s also a distance camera for viewing interactive whiteboards/plasma screens.

Getting the provision of hardware (and software/apps) right for blind and partially sighted students to access the same educational materials and resources as other students is key to them enjoying being part of a fully inclusive class and to attaining in line with their cognitive ability irrespective of their disability. Lucy will talk about other Humanware products that provide this support.
