A4BD Questionnaire Latvian - English: https://goo.gl/forms/h73IeuFD8vhULeov2
Context and objective
285 million people suffer from visual impairments, 39 million of them being blind and 246 million have low vision. The difficult situation of these people may lead to isolated and sedentary lifestyle, and development of both physical and mental health problems. A4BD objective is to develop a system with enough capabilities to substantially alleviate the psychological situation of visually impaired people – allowing them to perceive the astronomical objects utilizing sounds. Towards this direction, a questionnaire is being developed in order to be distributed to as many as possible visually impaired to assess several critical aspects.
