We highlighted some of the most-popular “YouTubers” and online content creators who are blind or visually impaired in a recent blog post, but did you know there are several Braille Institute students and staff members who have their own YouTube Channels and blogs with many focused on technology for the vision impaired?
At Braille Institute, we’re lucky to have some brilliant and tech savvy content creators who are visually impaired and who share their expertise and experiences online. Many of them focus on technology but some also focus on cooking and sharing what it is like to live with vision impairment.
