Resources For The Blind

Blindy.TV is a charitable project created by blind people that believe that the blind should be able to enjoy the same television programming that entertains and contributes to the shared culture of their sighted family and friends. We contribute freely of our time and resources to provide a free described television programming service to those that are served by neither commercial products nor government programs. The current service provides a few channels of audio-only television programming, in several genres, all with audio description.

- Welcome to I Can Work This Thing - Lots of folks who are blind throughout the years have had in their possession something that they could not work. Then they found a manual in a form that they could read, or had someone read the manual to them and somehow learned to work that thing. Maybe that thing was a piece of amateur radio equipment, a radio scanner, a cell phone, or digital recorder and the list goes on.
As they learned how to work that thing, they made notes and developed quick guides or cheat sheets to make it easier for them to work that thing. More and
more folks are sending us these cheat sheets or quick guides; information on how to start using that particular thing.
A warm welcome from all of us at VIP Conduit. -
You may wonder how we got our name. The acronym VIP has the
traditional meaning "very important person", but in some
circles it also stands for "visually impaired person". We
believe that all of our visitors and guest are VIP's in the
traditional sense but VIP also describes the group we serve.

Welcome To The Accessible Devices Home Page
The Accessible Devices event came into existence in June of 2002.
When we realized that while the sighted community had easy access
to virtually any product not all of them were accessible to us.
When individual members of the Blind community found a product that was
accessible, there was no means of sharing that information with others. The Accessible Devices event was an attempt to fill that need.
