This program looks at the wide range of adaptive technology available to the blind and visually impaired community.
Tom Randall, Nathan Romo and I meet in the ‘Blindside Fresno’ studio to look at all kinds of gadgets from cheap and cheerful to some pretty expensive tech. As technology expands the good news for blind people is that more technology is being created for the mass market and much of this technology is accessible to the blind and visually impaired.
While we did find one or two gadgets which are more expensive because they are created for the blind and visually impaired market we also found lots of useful and important items at realistically affordable prices.
So if you have been blind or visually impaired for many years or you are just coming to terms with loss of sight then take a look at this video introduction to some of the neccessary technology out there.
