The Visulibre Project: Open Enabling Technologies for the Visually Impaired

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

When planning for a new semester, we may want to consider a variety of approaches that make learning accessible to our students. It is important to consider the needs of all of our students. In 2019, I attended 2 higher education events that examined the question of how to ensure that our training is accessible to those who may have specific needs. During one of these I discovered the Visulibre project, which puts enabling technologies in the hands of visually impaired users. I recently spoke to Miguel Ross who leads the Visulibre project based in Quebec City with hopes of learning more about their mission and activities.

For new teachers who are a little overwhelmed by all of the information to assimilate early on in their career, we hope this can serve as both a source of inspiration and a valuable memory aid. We have prepared our toolkit with the free version of Genially, a tool that has a clear educational potential!
