Picture Of E-Classroom

The classroom can be made interactive by the use of Braille keyboard with audio support and software. Each individual student in the classroom can be given a Braille keyboard (8 Braille Keyboards can be connected with a single workstation) and while writing the students using Braille keyboard, the teacher can monitor the Braille file (as well as the converted text) of each student at a glance on a single monitor. Thus monitoring the performance in a test has been made easier using E-Classroom environment.
