While many daily tasks are still easier to accomplish for a person who can see clearly, there are a great deal of aids for the visually impaired that are making it a bit easier to get things done without being able to see.
The primary way for someone with diminished sight capacity to read text is through the use of Braille. This bumpy language was traditionally only used in books, but has recently been cropping up off the page as well, venturing as far as being included on specialized food products like hamburgers.
Smartphones and other vision-requiring devices are no longer off-limits for those without a pair of 20/20 vision peepers. New technology is allowing for everyone to use these tools with the aid of specialized technology and voice-assistance.
