10 February: Editing Blind

by admin on February 7, 2022

Join us for an insight into what it’s like to navigate a digital world while blind.

Can you edit a document that you can’t even see? Most people might be surprised to hear that there are visually-impaired people who work as editors. But how is this possible?

Join us as Erin Nightingale, a blind editor (her preferred terminology), talks about the obstacles she’s overcome and the tools she uses.
