Truvision is an online learning environment designed to enable blind and vision impaired learners to develop skills and expertise in elementary and advanced information processing strategies (it supports several IT competencies at Certificate I level). This will enable learners to seek full-time employment within industry in such positions as administrative assistants, Help Desk personnel and data entry operators.
The core design of Truvision is a simulated workplace for the blind or visually impaired, featuring creative ways of engaging learners. The range of vision impairment means that a number of different specialised features have been used simultaneously. A graphical and highly visual interface was designed which allows for partially sighted people to optimise their visual perceptions, while providing detailed hidden text descriptions which can be read by screen readers for those with no vision. The product has been optimised for users of the screen reader Jaws 3.7 and the screen magnification product ZoomText 7.0.
