The computer skills have opened the doors of career opportunities for the visually challenged students. Some students have secured government jobs while others were offered good jobs in corporate sector. However, other students are pursuing higher studies in the regular curriculum.
It is unique in that students are trained to write their intermediate board and degree exams on laptops without the help of scribes (helpers).The concept of using laptops instead of less qualified scribes is a brainchild of JET Founder HH Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji. When Swamiji visited centres in other countries that provide education and rehabilitation and many other modern facilities to the blind children. Yet these students were dependent on scribes for education. He brought together a team to remove this dependability through the use of modern technology. The students use special software called Screen Reading software (eg JAWS) to hear the typed matter through headphones. This allows them to study without disturbing others. At present JAWS uses an American accent, however Swamiji expects the team to develop software for Indian accent of English and Indian languages. This will be easier and help students further. There is a playground on the campus for outdoor sports and other games. Also there is hall for the students to do yoga and play indoor games to enjoy.
