The original application of this technology was designed for those with vision loss. However, applications for mainstream users were quickly realized. There’s much more to the company…listen and find out!

A few weeks ago, I brought you the story of Daredevil, the blind super hero…
Today, a self-narrated profile of Iron Woman. When not biking, running and swimming, this mild mannered tri-athlete is Sommelier Amy Dixon.
Since becoming blind, she’s lost over 50 pounds and is pacing her way towards the Olympics in Rio. If you’re interested in learning just how she did that or what resources are available for blind athletes; first play the audio and then check out the additional resources courtesy of Amy.

Netflix launched their new series Marvel’s Daredevil earlier this month. While they received some negative feedback from the blind community and others for not including audio description, this piece doesn’t address that. However, be sure to check out the piece I did for the Pennsylvania Council of the Blind’s Talking Advocacy & government titled Behind the Scenes of Netflix Advocacy.
I was fortunate to have a chance to talk to Joe Strechay from the American Foundation for the Blind. He is the man behind Daredevil…well hit play and find out what I mean!
