5. Technology kicks ass
Auggie hearts Apple. If you needed another reason to love the iPhone, check this out: Go to Settings > General, and under Accessibility turn on Voice Over. Now you can operate your phone like Auggie does.
If you’re really committed, turn the speed of the speech up. (My blind friends listen at about three times normal speaking speed!) Another gadget we use on the show is a document reader. It snaps a picture of a page of text, runs it through software, and then reads that text to you in about ten seconds.
For the first time in history, a blind person can pull any book off the shelf and start reading it independently, and that kicks ass.
