erasingblindness: Erasing Blindness

Are you blind or visually impaired and tired of being on a bunch of different mailing lists because each list will only let you talk about one topic? Well those days are over. This list is for blind and visually impaired people to talk about their disabilities and ways to overcome them and for people who can see to talk about blindness and visual impairments as well as what causes them and how to prevent them or lessen their effect on blind or visually impaired people as well as their friends, families and coworkers. We can talk about adaptive technology( hardware and software) from Humanware, Freedom Scientific, Hims, Apple and other companies. As well as that, we can talk about which websites are and are not accessible to blind and visually impaired people who use screen readers or note takers to go on the internet. All kinds of accessible games can also be talked about. We can also talk about the basics like orientation and mobility and braille. It is ok to talk about anything to do with blindness. The topics listed here do not have to be the only things we talk about. They are just some examples. If you are blind or visually impaired and want to learn how to make your life easier and more fun or you are a person who can see and you want to learn about blindness and visual impairments as well as what causes them and how to prevent them or lessen their effect on blind or visually impaired people as well as their friends, families and coworkers, then please join this list. This list is in English. Also check out the Erasing Blindness Blog that goes with this list at www.blindnesseraserblog.wordpress.com. If you have any questions or comments about the Erasing Blindness Mailing List and or Blog, please feel free to email blindnesseraser@gmail.com. Thank you.
