: EDICO upgrades for Statics and Financial Mathematics

Nov 04, 2019

ONCE-EDICO is a scientific editing software that enables a blind or visually impaired person to nimbly follow a maths class with full autonomy. Thanks to its recent upgrade that offers new major functionalities, it is also fully compatible with Statistics and Financial Mathematics. This allows students to get real-time interaction with these scientific disciplines as their sighted peers do in the classroom, with them or with their teachers.
More than 1.400 students in Spain use EDICO at present and that is why this upgrade is so significant. This project has been delivered to meet the needs posed by many blind students in order to easily follow their Maths lessons. Developed by the Complutense University of Madrid in collaboration with the ONCE, this educational tool is intended to achieve full inclusion and integration of blind students in mainstream classrooms and in equal learning conditions to non-visually impaired people.
