There is a link between disability, loss of employment and impoverishment in rural India

Of the world’s population, 15% live with some form of disability. Are disabilities associated with economic hardships through loss of employment and consequent impoverishment in rural India? We tried to answer this question by using the two rounds of the India Human Development Survey (IHDS) data for 2005 and 2012.

Janni Lehrer-Stein writes in the NyTimes: What It’s Like to Use Facebook When You’re Blind

Tue, 03/03/2020 - 14:36 -- geeta.nair

For years, that was essentially my experience on Facebook, and it
remains that way for me on other social media platforms and the
internet at large. You see, I am blind. I rely on a screen reader to
use my computer — it reads the words in text out loud. Since a screen
reader recognizes only words and numbers, photographs, diagrams and
other images are often inaccessible.

This visually impaired Kerala man is a telephone directory of voices

Fri, 02/28/2020 - 11:43 -- geeta.nair

KOCHI: The person sitting at the telephone desk inside the public relations officer's room at the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) office might appear to be a nondescript man. But he is not your run of the mill employee at a government office. There is something special about Achenkunju Thomas, who will be retiring on February 28 as the EPFO telephone operator. The specialty lies in the fact that he has an uncanny sense of sound.

Of course, people might point out that he is visually impaired!

What’s with the shallow news coverage on disability?

Thu, 02/27/2020 - 14:20 -- geeta.nair

Last week, two headlines on the digital platforms of leading dailies caught my attention. One read, “Two blind HSC students find writers at the 11th hour”. And the second stated, “HSC exams: Finding writers a real test for some”.

 

Both these news stories highlight one of the most commonly faced problems by any blind student in India. Given their vision impairment, these students are dependent on ‘scribes’ to write their exams.
