Sighted or blind, we want to know how blindness has impacted your world. Maybe your friend is blind, and you’ve never thought twice about it. Perhaps your coworker has a braille notetaker and introduced you to a world of assistive technology you didn’t know existed. Or maybe you were born without sight and you’ve spent your life reminding people that you may be blind, but you’re still human. MyBlindStory is your voice – your chance to share, compare and challenge readers to change the way they see.

What does blind mean to you? We’re listening.
