Free tablets will be provided for students with low vision, said Majid Qadami, head of the Special Education Organization of Iran.

“The tablets facilitate easy reading for students as the fonts are adjustable, while the printed materials provide a standard average size for different levels of the disability,” he told ISNA. “About one-third of the vision-impaired in special schools are students with low vision and different levels of severity.” Noting that tablets were provided to students who completed the previous academic year in a special education school, he said the organization plans to cover 500-600 students this year. Large print reading materials are sold at about $3 to students, while they cost over $30 for the Education Ministry to supply.
