Our Story – Our ApproachWith an aim of bringing the visually impaired on a single platform with that of changing technology an institute called Voice Vision was formed in April 2000 as a project of the Basudeo Bubna Memorial Trust. This establishment is a product of Ms Sushmeetha B. Bubna’s vision and years of her wishful thinking which was driven by her simple principle of “Why not act, when you know you can make a difference”. “Technology is changing, and so should we”, was the motto behind driving a change in the outlook of the society towards the visually impaired. In this era where hardware support and software assistance are the head runners of innovation, screen reading software’s like JAWS developed by a US based company called Freedom Scientific inc, NVDA an open source software and many more have come to the rescue of the visually impaired, making him/her feel Independent, Empowered and Self-sufficient. With this vision, today, even while marching towards completion of two decade of its existence, Voice Vision is continuing to provide vision, not only to the visually impaired by imparting lessons on technological accessibility and persons with other disabilities by inclusive environment, but also to the sighted or non-disabled , by giving them an eye to witness the change, and thereby garnering an increasing acceptance in today’s society. With the chief motive of imparting computer training through various screen reading software’s , Voice Vision has come a long way, in shaping the future of more than 120 of its students and empowering more than 2,000 individuals via various Knowledge Sessions. And this being just the beginning, Voice Vision is continuing to do so with an increased rigor every time. To stand testimony to this statement, Voice Vision is giving a holistic touch to its efforts by introducing courses on
- Practical Education: Comprising of Computer training, Personality test, English training, Reader Writer, Scholarship and more.
- Professional Skill Enhancement through its unique Entrepreneurial Idea Award program.
- Life Skill comprising of Knowledge Sessions,Matrimonial Platform, Parent Support Group and more. “No person with disability will stand the test of tide, but will be empowered to swim across in the pool of self-confidence and achievements.”
- With this determination, “Voice Vision has, is, and will always remain a path to knowledge, success, and inspiration to achieve one’s goals in life.”
