The trainees work on computers equipped with the latest access technologies, helped by specially qualified trainers

Announced from the beginning of this October, the new computer operator courses for visually impaired people, organized by the Brasov Association of the Blind as the first form of permanently available education for blind people in Romania, attracted a great interest from the potential beneficiaries.

As a consequence the available places for the first series were filled in less than three weeks and the courses started on October 23.

„All the trainees from this first series are very interested and passionate about computers. This passion, the opening toward the world and the practically unlimited access to information offered now by the modern computer technology even for visually impaired people fueled the trainees desire to grab the opportunity given them by the Brasov Association of the Blind” stated Lavinia Bobu, trainer in the Brasov Association of the Blind’s IT & Training Department.
