- Sireesha TakilapatiBusiness Manager, TekSystems“I had an opportunity to hire and work with visually impaired people and It was great to see how they can tab between screens to review multiple CVs at a time and make notes for screening process. Not only they switch between screens easily but also access multiple applications to update internal tools with the required info. Kudos to EnAble India in training them to utilize the existing aids/software that are helping to perform their tasks and making business as usual for them.”
It all started in a 10X5 room with our founder, Shanti and her initial team of employees with vision impairment. The intent was clear. To make the visually impaired ‘battle ready’ for skilled jobs in the open labour market. How would this happen? By acquiring digital mastery on computers.Today we are elated to see thousands of visually impaired people employed in varied computer-based jobs. They are working in the area of medical transcription, spam management, service management, program management, human resources and so on. Every issue that can pose a hurdle on the job, has been anticipated and converted into hundreds of ‘experiential exercises’ and ‘role simulations’. Jobs traditionally perceived to be ‘visual’ are no longer out of reach for the blind.Read more about the journey...
