Peter White talks to Daniel Danker, General Manager of BBC iPlayer about the problems being experienced by blind people trying to use iPlayer.
Daniel apologised to listeners and offered them a new BBC facility of an accessibility line providing technical support and advice, which Jim Taylor had requested on last week's programme.
Peter also talked to PC David Rathband, the policeman blinded in a shooting incident last year.
David said he is struggling with being blind and doesn't feel he's received enough support in 14 months he's been blind.
