We've all said at one time, "I can't believe my eyes," or, "I can't believe my ears." Sometimes it's true, our vision and hearing can fool us, but think about it. We don't say that about our sense of touch, that's because we know that what we can actually feel is real. When we use our sense of touch, we may be using the most accurate sense we have. The world is full of visual information, printed labels, signs, directions, and digital displays. Things in print can tell us a lot, but most of the time we need to know only two things about anything in our house, what it is and how to use it.
Tactile marks, or marks that we can feel, can tell us those two things without any guesswork, especially if we can't count on our vision to do the same job.
Ed Haines: Now that you’ve had a chance to learn a bit with us, we’d like to learn more about you; your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley and your relationship to vision loss.
Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don’t worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you’d prefer to talk through these questions, we’re just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge.
And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
