Meaning you can only show a few people about blindness at a time?

Thanks,
Mike

info to that list would be nice, but this happens and well most of the time you can only show a few people at a time.

This message isn't even remotely on topic for this list. To discuss
it, you can join a group like blind-x, which I don't have subscription
information for but I can get if you want it.

Subject: [nvda] Question about diminished expectations of blind
people, by people who can see

Hi,

Something I have struggled with all my life is peoples'
misunderstandings about blindness. People who are not blind often shy
away from me in social situations, just because I am blind. I have faced this at school and work.
People might think that just because I am blind, I cannot perform at
the same expectations as everyone else.

This question was bothering me badly over the weekend. The feedback I
received is that people may see blindness as something they cannot
cure or fix, so they treat them as outcasts.

What can blind people do to educate people who are not blind?

Thank you,
Mike
