Running Events helps to empower the blind community
Before the running of Everyone's A Winner 5K and 10K, held on Sunday, April 29, 2018, road race organisers, Running Events Jamaica, committed to support the Jamaica Society for the Blind with the race proceeds.
On Monday, October 8, the partners delivered on their promise, in collaboration with Food For The Poor Jamaica, to present 24 HP personal computers, specially equipped with non-visual desktop access (NVDA) software to the society.
NVDA allows blind and vision-impaired individuals to access and interact with the Windows operating system and many third-party applications. In other words, members of the blind community are able to interact and access web pages, pay bills, send and receive emails, among other things, through the assistance of NVDA.
