When looks elude me

This is something about which I am afraid there is nothing to be done.  The best thing for me is to simply acknowledge it and deal with it.

When people exchange looks and glances among themselves and I happen to be around, I will never know.  When people make eye contact with each other and I am around, I would never know.  When people wink or smile at each other, I will never know.

This is why it is often said that gestures and body language may be much more effective when conveying messages.  They are easier and faster to use when communicating, but for someone who is blind they are not.

We need to depend almost exclusively on one's voice: the tone, inflection, hesitations and pauses, and so on.  However, a blind person may often be able to tell when some sort of gesture is being used in communication. Just another thing for me to deal with in my daily life.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
