With the help of the Netbook, like his sighted counterparts he can record notes in class itself and maintains the same for future reference. He became independent with the netbook. The notes taken can be preserved properly and he can use the same for examinations. Besides he can also browse the net for reference material the first step for becoming self reliant.
