They will find a prototype of a talking Braille keyboard, which can be adapted to any computer and allow a visually impaired person to use a conventional keyboard in a tactile way, but adapted to their needs. Which may facilitate spatial location by having a conventional keyboard without this adaptation.

We want to present an option of inclusion in the use of technology to people with visual impairment, the objective is for the participants to visualize and experience how traditional media can be adapted for inclusion in our own community. In our case, we have a student with visual impairment and one of the biggest challenges we faced was when working with a computer, since other subjects make the curricular adjustments, however in his technology class he chose to reinforce other aspects , since he could not work alongside his colleagues. This motivated and inspired other students to seek the means and through the design thinking process a PBL was launched, which did not allow to generate different prototypes through the use of different algorithms for programming and automation.
We have consulted some articles on the way in which schools have integrated the visually impaired into their educational system http://tiflologia.blogspot.com/2005/09/integracion-de-nios-ciegos-en-la.html
We have also met with leaders of some institutions in our state that work educational and inclusion programs for the visually impaired such as
- Asociación de Ciegos y Debiles Visuales Calidad de Vida sin Ver A.C.
- Asociación Mexicana de Educadores de Personas con Discapacidad Visual, A.C.
