The BRIC is continuing to equip the Region's Special Educational Needs institutions!

Following the delivery of high-speed Braille printers in 2018, the BRIC is continuing its programme to equip four type-6 Special Educational Needs institutions (visual impairment, blind and partially sighted) in the Brussels Region with the installation of four workstations in autumn 2019, each with Braille control panels, speech synthesis software and screen magnifiers. The software also allows people to learn Braille.

The institutions in question

  • The Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind People (IRSA) (primary and secondary FR)
  • The Institut Alexandre Herlin (primary and secondary FR)
  • Special Needs School Kasterlinden (primary and secondary NL)
  • The Royal Institute of Woluwé-Saint-Lambert (primary and secondary NL)

The involvement of the BRIC is all the more valued and valuable as this equipment has a significant cost (€7,500 incl. VAT per PC). The BRIC also provided a customised service along with the delivery of this equipment, in the form of a guarantee that the investment would continue for at least five years.

This is another project that will make a difference on the ground to many blind and partially sighted young people in Brussels, and to their teachers!
