Are you aware of how much your vision is involved in your ability to communicate? We take it for granted that part of how we get our messages across to others, is what we gesture and what we communicate through our facial expressions. Telana speaks with Christopher Venter, who lost his sight in 2014, about what he has learnt from this experience of having lost one of his senses, and specifically his lessons about communication and relating to others. Topics include being specific with your choice of words, listening, patience, acceptance and trust.
To hear more about his adventure and story about his challenges, plus a demonstration of the technology solutions assisting the blind to communicate online, see the Let’s Talk Possibility episode entitled: The Adventures of the Blind Scooter Guy.
