English Language Learning for Visually Impaired Students

TANDEM Hamburg and TANDEM Florence are participating in the COMENIUS project ELLVIS, which intends to improve the access of visually impaired persons to language learning.

As good learning material for visually impaired children is rare, it is essential to create innovative material which opens up new possibilities for this target group.

Learning tools based on iconic material (images, pictures, animations) are practically unavailable for visually impaired persons. This language course is aimed at those who are unable to use these technical aids, who need further assistance and prompting through a system that supplies feedback in other than audio-file form, namely by the «force-feedback» reaction that the joystick offers.
