In this study, extending the use of assistive technology (AT) in developing countries including the localization of the technology for minority languages was aimed at. Nepali screen reader was discussed as one of the most needed AT in those countries. First our team visited Nepal, and investigated the current situation of blind people and their use of AT in the country. Secondly Nepali screen reader was build using existing technology including a speech engine of a closely related language, Hindi. Its trial concluded that Hindi speech engine could work for Nepali screen reader. It is suggested that this economical approach could be applicable to the development of screen readers for other minority languages. Providing information about AT can be also a key element when supporting developing countries.
