WE ALL LIVE IN A SEEING WORLD.

SO, DESPITE REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS, ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY AND TRAVEL SKILLS, VISION LOSS CONSUMERS CAN BE FACED WITH CLEAR LIMITATIONS.

IN OTHER WORDS, BLIND INDEPENDENT LIVING SOMETIMES MEANS DEPENDENCE ON PERSONAL ASSISTANTS LIKE SIGHTED READERS, SIGHTED GUIDES AND SIGHTED MENTORS.

FOLLOWING ARE SOME NOT INFREQUENT AND IMPORTANT EXAMPLES...

1. MANY WEBSITES ARE NOT SCREEN READER OR SCREEN MAGNIFIER FRIENDLY

2. ONLINE SHOPPING TOO OFTEN IS NOT FULLY ACCESSIBLE

3. TALKING SCANNERS CANNOT EFFICIENTLY READ EVERYTHING, LIKE COLUMNS

4. BUS, SUBWAY AND LIGHT RAIL ROUTES DO NOT GO EVERYWHERE

5. UNSIGHTED ASSEMBLY OF PRODUCTS MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE WITH PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS AND VISUAL ILLUSTRATIONS

6. STORES MAY BE TOO BUSY OR SHORT-HANDED FOR PERSONAL ATTENTION WITH PRODUCT LOCATIONS

7. WHAT DOES THE WEATHER LOOK LIKE, WHO OR WHAT IS NEARBY AND WHAT DOES THE SECURITY CAMERA SHOW

8. PROPER SUMMERTIME YARD SPRINKLER SETTING NEEDS SIGHT

9. LOOKOUT SAFETY AND VISUAL JUDGEMENT ARE EVERYDAY FACTS OF LIFE NOT TO BE IGNORED

10. MANY HOME OR APARTMENT HANDYMAN CHORES NEED MORE THEN TOUCH TO FIX

11. HOW-DO-I-LOOK IN A MIRROR HANDICAP FOR GROOMING AND ATTIRE

12. HUMAN HELP NEEDED IF NO LABEL READER DEVICE OR LABEL NOT IN DIRECTIONS-FOR-ME DATABASE

13. DISABLED PERSONAL TECHNOLOGY MAY DEMAND SIGHTED ASSISTANCE FOR CRASH RECOVERY

14. WHEN TO REPLACE TONER CARTRIDGE IN COMPUTER PRINTER OR OTHER HARDWARE

15. PEOPLE WATCHING HELP, AS WELL AS ANIMALS, PLANTS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

16. MOST TIMEKEEPING DEVICES NEED VISION TO SET TIME OR SET ALARM

17. DETERMINE RAISED NUMERALS ON PLASTIC BANK CARDS

18. LARGE AND CHANGING MAZE OF A TYPICAL MEDICAL CENTER CANNOT BE DESCRIBED IN ADVANCE

19. BAKE TO A GOLDEN BROWN RATHER THEN TIME TO DONE

20. NEITHER ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OR A VERY EXPRESSIVE PERSON CAN REALLY FULLY DESCRIBE A HUMAN FACE WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE LINE UPS WHEN EXACT IDENTIFICATION IS NEEDED
