Andrew told us about his favourite audio labelling device, the PenFriend 2. He showed us how easy it is to use and explained how it helps him keep track of what's in his kitchen cupboards!

"Someone told me I couldn't paint and I thought 'watch this space'. Lots of people think blind people can't do certain things but they can." And Dawn has proved this with her incredibly detailed paintings.
Dawn grew up during the second world war, and has had sight problems all her life. In the 1980s, her retina collapsed and she was told there was nothing more that could be done. She was going blind.

Election day is finally here! If you're still not sure what to expect, here's our guide to accessible voting...
#GE15 #voting #electionday
All voters have a right to vote independently and in secret, and local authorities have to ensure that polling stations are accessible to people with sight loss.

Here Belo Cipriani tells a story that shows how assistive technology has made it much easier for blind and partially sighted people to remain independent, but how not everyone he meets understands that... have you had a similar experience?
