Jockey Club Smart City Walk Project
As an engagement in community initiatives, the OUHK participated in the Hong Kong Blind Union’s Jockey Club Smart City Walk Project as a venue partner. The project, on the Chief Executive’s Community Project List 2017 and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, involved the development of a mobile app that helps visually impaired users navigate independently in indoor venues. The OUHK Stanley Ho Library and Ho Sik Yee Library were among the first venues — and the only one in a tertiary institution so far — to be included in the project.
The University’s collaboration in the project will help visually impaired students access the OUHK library and locate its facilities and collections more conveniently.
