Assistive technology for blind people: radio “Menk”

The development of this internet radio for the blind was one of our earliest initiatives to assist persons with disabilities. One of the “Internet Society” NGO’s 2016 projects is radio-menq.am.

It was carried out with the assistance of the Armenian Union of the Blind and was funded by an international “Internet Society” organization. The staff of the Internet radio intended for the blind was formed from the instructors of the computer center of the House of Culture of the Armenian Academy of Sciences, and later more experts joined them.

The major objective of Radio “Menk” is to regularly inform those who have visual disabilities about many aspects of public life and how they can participate in them. It offers audio books in addition to the internet platform-radio broadcasts.
