locked Re: warning if you doing business

Carolyn Arnold

I went on the Internet and (in quotes) "watched" a video on how to use a curling iron. Naturally, if I could see, I would have gotten more out of it, but that is true about everything other than sleeping. The video was helpful and made sense to me. Plus, I learned a couple of invaluable tips about using a curling iron safely.

Vidio instructions will do us no good unless they have dvs blind people can't see vidios. That is not a workable sulution at all.

Morning all,

Several points have been made in this discussion, but I want to
concentrate on Dave's assertion, and his amusement.

Dave, let me explain something to you. Stop being grumpy and listen.
There are people in this world who actually need braille, not prefer
it, or desire it, but actually need it. These are our friends who are
DeafBlind. They cannot use any audio materials spoken by either human
or synthetic voices.
They need braille.

Second, RE the matter of Free Matter for the Blind. I would not want
equipment of any kind shipped Free Matter because it takes so long to
ship and also because it is treated like third class mail, the
potential for damage is great! I don't think you can ship computers
Free Matter. It has to be something specifically designed for the
blind, not something that is available to all.

Now as to instructions sent with equipment for the blind, many
companies which sell material specifically designed for the blind do,
not, ship, accessible instructions with their products!! They don't
ship large print. They don't ship braille. They don't ship audio,
nothing accessible, only a printed pamphlet! This is unconscionable!
A person who is blind should receive instructions in some kind of
accessible format, period! It could be an audio CD, or a braille hard
copy or a braille file, but something!
Instead, they ship their products with printed instructions, expecting
the blind person to be able to access them somehow. Roger Behm is the
*only* businessman I know of who ships accessible instructions and
manuals without being asked. I had to get sighted help to label a
calculator for a student because the company which sent the thing
didn't bother including accessible instructions.
