New technologies for the visually impaired – RTBF

Chris Alexander at 40, he suffers from a genetic eye disease. For 15 years, his eyesight continues to decline. The key for him is to remain independent despite his disability. New technologies are an integral part of his life: they enable him to meet his mail, to keep up to date or to make bank payments. It’s a smartphone with voice synthesis that helps keep independent.

A great connoisseur of new technologies, Chris is a trainer for the National Institution for the Blind. It helps people who, like him, have a visual impairment to use. For the participants, this is an essential step towards autonomy.
