software. Braille embossers or Braille printer, stand alone products and so on. This kind
of assistive technology have given such a big contribution for visual impairment and
sighted impaired people. It is because, through this assistive technology, they can
experience a growth of technology like normal people and thus can increase their
computer literacy. So this thesis purposely will identify the characteristics of computer
equipments used and also the visually impaired people acceptance towards these
technologies. For this thesis, the scope for the research will focus on the Malaysian
