Be My Eyes

Just a little bit of help would make such a difference. In this program, you'll hear about audio description for our national parks' brochures, new help that is being offered by Google, Microsoft and Be My Eyes. And I'll include a few universal design tips. All of these topics will

provide just a little bit of help.

This week's program will be in two parts. The first will feature words of encouragement for parents of children who are blind. The second part will be about a free and useful smartphone app called "Be My Eyes."
