Educating the sighted

This is an ongoing effort; educating the sighted about the world of the blind and how we do things. How we go about working in our kitchens, cleaning our homes, surfing the Internet, going to and from work, working in our home offices, going to school, doing our grocery and clothes shopping, traveling, and so much more.

Educating the sighted is something that I enjoy for the most part but this is not to say that there aren’t any challenges and barriers that crop up from time to time. There are real barriers, artificial ones, and what I call home made ones. All barriers for the blind world to deal with and overcome because we do indeed have to overcome them. For if we don’t then we will certainly continue to be left behind.

I’m Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and urging you to go out there and share my thoughts with others. Visit www.nfb.org to learn more.
