New experiences: Wearing a mask as a blind person

I know that we are all in this together but I would just like to highlight some of my challenges as a person with a vision impairment as I continue to wear a mask during this Covid time. I will hasten to add that I am not complaining; it could be a lot worse.

First, It is sometimes difficult for me to speak clearly and when this takes place it is difficult for me to communicate fully and clearly. I need to ensure that I am fully understood.

Next, those around me who do not know me often do not realize that I am vision impaired so I need to make sure that I carry my cane and that my cane is always visible.

Then I need to ensure that my mask is always well fitted on my face and that there is no opportunity for it to slip.

Yes, it is a challenge but I know that it must be done so I make the best of my mask.

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