Despite the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 mandating that all contents available in audio, print and electronic media be in accessible format for all students, students with visual disabilities struggle to use digital materials that do not adhere to this. With this video we show what visual inaccessibility feels like for a student with a visual disability, using examples from NCERT Mathematics and Economics textbooks.
Vidhi’s upcoming report studies such issues of accessibility on the Centre’s DIKSHA platform, for students with visual disabilities. This is an independent non-commissioned research study authored by Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy, under the Kotak-Vidhi Inclusive Education Programme. Kotak Mahindra Bank Limited supports this programme in furtherance of its CSR programme.
