ICT Accessibility in Education for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs)

Launched in 2016 as a presidential initiative at the annual ICT4PwDs Conference, the project aims to empower PwDs using ICTs, targeting equipping 3000 PwDs schools nationwide with ICT tools and specialized applications and programs, and providing training to 30,000 teachers of these schools to improve the efficiency of education.
Teachers are trained on computer basics, specialized programs and Assistive Technologies.

In addition, the teachers were also trained on the Unified Sign Language Dictionary— the first unified academic Arabic sign language digital dictionary which overcomes the variations in the sign language, developed by MCIT and accredited by the Ministry of Education.
