Simulating Blindness, Blind Darts, 'Be My Eyes' App

A study by Colorado University has shown that simulating blindness may adversely affect sighted people's perception of the visually impaired. Peter White speaks to the study's lead author Arielle Silverman, who is blind, about her findings.

Tony Shearman visits a pub in Grampound, Cornwall, to meet a blind dart's team.

BeMyEyes is a new iPhone app that connects a blind person wanting a little bit of help, with a sighted volunteer. We hear from a user, and the app's inventor, Hans Wiberg.
