Ever Wonder How a Blind Man Surfs the Internet?

  • When Sameer Doshi posted a photo to Reddit of a Rubik’s Cube he solved despite being mostly blind, he was inundated with questions from Redditors that basically boiled down to “How do you do X while blind?” Perhaps the most-asked question was, “How do you do anything on a computer while blind?”

    Luckily for Doshi, he hasn’t lost all his vision, just most of it, and in this video he takes us on a tour through the multiple tools that he uses, not only to browse Reddit, but for his day job as a computer engineer. He uses a combination of two tools — one that magnifies the screen and another that creates a higher contrast so text is easier to read.
