    Oh, and I think accessible name badges could be lots of fun!

    another one for the list is art galleries.
    However I definately care about birds. Walking around and hearing them sing, twitter and chat to each other enhances an otherwise boring walk through parks, woods etc. early morning bird song changes with the season: spring and summer would not be the same without bird song.
    hooray for tactile name badges, yes please!

    definately care about birds. life without birdsong would be very dull. walking in parks and woods is boring without the chat, twitter and song of birds. early morning birdsong changes from season to season, waking up in spring and summer is made so much better when greeted by the early morning dawn chorus.
    yes to tactile name badges,

    My husband has a braille rubix cube (ok, so it's actually a normal one with braille sticker on the outside, but you get the idea). He still can't solve it!

    I care about birds and the sky and the moon..im registered blind/SVI but can see all of these..

    looks like the person who dreamed these up didnt take into account that most Reg Blind/SVI people do have *some * vision and thus will care about these things as much or as little as someone who is "sighted.

    I completely agree with myrtlemaid and think we should pity the limited intelligence of the compiler of this list.
