The first in Belarus Internet cafe for handicapped people was opened in
Brest on December 21, 2005.

devices for people with diminished hearing. The new PIAP, where 24

says Mr. Kobalevsky.

The cost of the project, which is a part of the "Electronic Belarus"

This is the fifth Internet cafe in Brest. 51 persons can use computers
in five Brest PIAPS simultaneously.
