Daniel Kish's Blind Vision Keynote Revolves Around Personal Freedom

In this blind vision keynote by Daniel Kish, the CEO of the World Access for the Blind organization discusses the pursuit of personal freedom despite one's visual limitation.

Navigating through the environment, interacting with individuals, making your own choices -- all of these seemingly basic tasks are predicated on the assumption that someone is able to in some way interpret their surroundings. Kish often asks his audience to close their eyes throughout the presentation in order to demonstrate the emotional anxiety one experiences when the idea of having a limited sense of the world is felt.

Kish's work is not just about teaching blind individuals how to navigate and orient themselves but rather on how to make a conscious decision to pursue freedom by refusing to accept the supposed boundaries implied by blindness.
