Signing an affidavit

For the most part, signing an affidavit is not a problem but when you are blind and do not have enough info to know where to sign then it is a challenge.  Add to this that you are totally dependent on someone else to tell you that what you are signing is indeed the affidavit that you are expecting to sign.

You need to have someone show you where to sign.  Some of us who are blind use a signature guide but others may not.  Some of us who have enough vision may be able to see where to sign.

For me, I always take along someone who I totally trust.  It is the best that I can do.  Of course, I could use my iPhone to take a picture through my KNFB reader app and have it read it out to me.  However, there are some challenges with this.

Despite the KNFB reader app being very accurate, I for one will still be a bit uneasy as to whether it is reading everything to me.

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