Abstract

This report wants to show our experience and line out the state of the art of the Educational Endeavour “Computer Science for the Blind” at the University of Linz. First we will show that supporting visually handicapped at University is a task for Computer Science. After that we will have a look at the social background of a handicap. Special notice we will be given to education and integration. Taking these basic intentions into account we will then focus on the services offered at our university.
