dc.description.abstract The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has an immense potential to improve the support needs of learners with visual impairments as well as their self-sufficiency and self-reliance. In the last nine years, the South African government introduced inclusive education, through White Paper 6 that requires that Learning, Teaching and Support Material, including ICTs be provided to learners with visual impairments. The provision of Assistive Technology devices (ATs) is essential to learners with visual impairments full involvement in learning through the use of ICTs. Furthermore, literature indicates that many studies were done in the use of ICTs in teaching and learning, specifically for learners with diverse visual impairments. Recommendations were also supplied by these studies on how and when to use ICTs in the teaching and learning of visually impaired learners. The empirical research of this study revealed that ICTs are essential tools for visually impaired learners to enhance their learning. It also drew attention to the fact that despite the commitments of White Paper 6 schools for the visually impaired are not yet supplied with appropriate ICTs and educators are not adequately trained to apply ICTs in teaching and learning. en_US
