How Do People Who Are Blind Use Computers and Other Technology?

We live in a highly  digital   society . Most of us are constantly using our phones, laptops, computers, and tablets. We use these devices to learn, to play games, to do work, to read, and to communicate and  interact  with each other.

But what if you’re  blind ? Are you able to participate in our  digital   society ?

Absolutely! People who are  blind  and visually impaired can, and do, use  computers , phones, and other electronic devices just as much as  sighted  people. People who are  blind  just have different ways of accessing these devices.  Blind  people use what’s called  assistive   technology , including screen readers, refreshable braille displays, and  digital  screen magnification to  interact  with high-tech products.

 Assistive  technology is any hardware or software used by people with disabilities to access computers, phones, tablets, and printed materials. There are many types of  assistive  technology, and different disabilities require different technologies. Read more here
