VOSAP Subsidy Scheme to make KIBO XS Device affordable for Visually Impaired SAP
Nandita Ravindra Tripathi is lawyer from Nagpur, Maharashtra with 100% Visual Impairment.
As part of the Subsidy scheme she received the device in February 2023 and has been using the device for more than a month now. Being a lawyer herself she has to review documents, annexures, and prepare for case proceedings and the device is helping her do it effectively and is also able to translate in regional languages. She is currently using it for reviewing and preparing documents in Hindi, English and Marathi.
She was very grateful to VOSAP for launching a subsidy scheme so that she could get a device at low cost that was affordable for her. She further shared “Since the COVID hit, my income was low and if the subsidy scheme wasn’t available, it would have been very difficult for me to afford the device. I am thankful to Voice of SAP for providing subsidy and supporting us.”

Hariom is a government employee and is working as Assistant C&W. He received the Kibo XS device in the month of February 2023. He uses it to read different documents, papers and books, translate and use it in regional language with good accuracy.
