My fingers do the walking

I don't think that you will find too many blind or sight impaired persons who will disagree with this statement.  Yes, my fingers do the walking for me and no!  It does not mean that I walk on my fingers.

 

I use my fingers to tell me so much.  Things like:  Where objects are, locating objects, feeling my way around counters and dressers, locating spots and spills, finding fallen objects, and using my sense of touch to help me decipher, remember, and create.

 

My fingers walk when I need to create music.  They help me to negotiate the way, and they are indeed some of my most important investigators, inspectors, and decision makers.  You can learn more about how blind and sight impaired persons use their fingers by visiting www.nfb.org.   

 

I'm Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and urging you to go out there and share my blogs with others.
