Technology for leveraging Music master born with visual impairment

As a dedicated music teacher, my music master Mr.Ravi Ganesh, 42 years old, does his best to ensure that his students learn music well. 

He has been teaching in schools since 1996 but currently, he is being challenged by lack of job opportunities as a music teacher at schools mainly due to their expectations that a visually challenged person can't fulfill or because he is overqualified for the position that they are expecting.

With a strong positive attitude and will power, he decided to expand his music profession. Apart from school, he has been running a small music institute since 20 years and also since 8 years he has been taking online music classes through skype using a laptop he has been donated. 

He wants to stand on his own feet by taking more online vocal music classes. Having equipped with knowledge of using a computer and with the help of talking software, he operates computer very well. He wants to buy a new laptop since his present laptop (Pentium 4 CPU) is quite slow and needs to be replaced.

We are planning to buy a DELL laptop i3 model which costs about Rs.35000/-.

Due to his present financial crisis, he wants to seek the help of crowd funding so that he could leverage his profession in music.
