Report on Kannada eSpeak Training with NVDA

Kannada eSpeak session at Mitra Jyothi

NVDA team conducted a two day training programme at Mitra Jyothi in Bangalore (June 8 and 9, 2015). Forty-three delegates attended the training programme.

This workshop was successful in training 43 members in reading and typing in Kannada . It was a “Dream Come True “ feeling for many of them who were waiting to express their thoughts in the regional language. They are now happy as they can continue to write poems , stories etc in their regional language without any external help to type or read.

For the job seekers it is an added advantage as in many government jobs they expect them to make reports and type documents in the official language and visually impaired  are now equipped with those skills. It is very important for promotional examinations at various levels during the career. It was indeed a very useful workshop for the visually impaired students and professionals in Karnataka. This training also included some telugu and hindi speaking students who were trained to read and write in their regional language.
