For the betterment of inclusive education practice for each and every available child, the presence and accessibility to ICT tools and resources must be ensured. This includes the inclusion on innovations and creations of ICT tools that accommodates the needs of special needs society.

The innovated tools must be assistive in a way that, may help on reducing social gape between impaired and regular people. The study setup was descriptive qualitative methods which preferred purposive sampling concerning with VI. The data collection technique was interviews and observation and only one document analysis.

The collected information was transcribed, coded and analysed before being presented in a report of the study. The findings revealed that, the Visual Impaired learners in teacher colleges, learns without benefiting much from the use of ICT assistive technologies. This seems either from the fact of their nature of their impairment or from not having adequate opportunity to access ICT tools. However, it is noted from the study whenever VI learners assisted properly in the use of ICT assistive devices, they are likely able to benefit more in education learning process.
