Really, I think it depends upon the case.  For example, if it's a murder case 
where there is loads of visual evidence then no I don't think a blind person 
should because they wouldn't be able to see the evidence and make a decision on 
it.  However, if the case isn't loaded with visual evidence then really I don't 
think it would matter much.

  OK, let's carry this one over from the blind computer users list where we can 
take it a little further than I will allow over there.  Should a blind person 
serve on a jury or not and what are the reasoning?
