Tangible Results for the Visually Impaired in Cuba

Cuba is currently presenting tangible results in the access of blind people to work, education and culture, allowing a greater development and integration of those visually impaired people.

The achievement were made possible by the National Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ANCI), created in July 1975.

Efforts are currently aimed at increasing access of the visually impaired to informatics, which will contribute to improve communications and access to work.

That strategy, implemented nationwide, has been supported by youth computing clubs, the Spanish National Organization of the Blind, and Handicap International's branch in Cuba.

ANCI members are receiving computing courses since 2008, and the new labs created for that purpose are equipped with modern technologies, to guarantee online teaching and internet surfing, among other benefits.

Other factors contributing to this development are the education level the country has reached, the continuity of studies, the creation of special readings for blind people and the Braille printers.
