Hi Akhilesh,

I meant something else. See, for this particular examination, the
examining authority may type out the question paper for you. Or in
fact, in case of any other exam conducted by this very organisation
too, it will do the same for any VI candidate. However, if you talk of
any other exams conducted by different organisations, take for
instance UPSC or IIMs for that matter, they generally avoid typing out
the question papers on the computer for the VI to read indipendently.
Despite CAT going online, I don't think the VI candidates were
permitted to answer the questions with the help of assistive
technology. Besides, many-a-times, the environment in which online
tests are conducted is not accessible for the VI. So, all these
technical difficulties might arise with other exams, and there might
be problems where the authorities might not provide the relaxations
that were provided to you.
