Gov­ern­ment of Bangladesh has launched a soft­ware pro­gramme ‘Screen Read­ers’ in pri­mary and se­condary schools to help blind or visu­ally-im­paired teach­ers to read text dis­played on the com­puter screen. The ini­tia­tive will en­able more than 20,500 se­condary and 5,400 pri­mary school teach­ers to use mul­ti­me­dia and com­put­ing skills to make Pow­erPoint pre­sen­ta­tions in the class­room. The new teach­ing method will ben­e­fit more than 4 mil­lion stu­dents across the coun­try. In Bangladesh, there are more than 100 blind and visu­ally-im­paired teach­ers serv­ing at pre-pri­mary, pri­mary and se­condary lev­els.
