“We had particular difficulties while teaching using maps and images. In this training, I have acquired the skills that help to deal with that. I am now confident that I can teach my students without these challenges. Also, notes used to be printed poorly without a title, but due to the skills that I now possess, Word documents will be published well and quickly converted to Braille.
“I'm very grateful for the skills I gained during RATA training. As a language teacher, I learned how to make comprehension texts more accessible for my students by turning them into audio recordings. Additionally, I also developed skills on how to confidently create school materials and resources that students with visual impairments will find easy to use.
In May 2019 , I attended the training for visually impaired youth on ICT conducted by Rwanda Assistive Technology Access (RATA). After the training, I was able to use a smartphone creating tables in Microsoft word, sending an email and even browsing on the internet which boosted my confidence of competing at the workplace after finishing my university studies.
