Welcome to NCBI’s How I See Campaign 2023! We hope this campaign will provide some insight into what everyday life is like for people who are blind or vision impaired.
This Campaign stems from service users and advocates highlighting to us the common misconceptions among the wider public on what they believe it is like to be blind or vision impaired. The How I See Campaign aims to inform and educate the public about the realities of living with sight loss and to answer many questions people may have but are too afraid to ask.
In part one of the campaign, we asked those involved to describe, for people who might not be aware, what their vision actually looks like for them. In part two we have more NCBI service users we asked participants about how they go about different aspects of what we consider to be everyday life.
In part three of NCBI’s How I See Campaign 2023, four of NCBI’s service users speak about using public transport. They explain the different accommodations they might need or techniques that they use to successfully use public transport systems.
As we’re now learning throughout this campaign, we will once again hear how everyone does things differently. Those differences might be slight or they might vast, but they are different nonetheless. Each person has their own individual needs, which directly affects how they interact with the transport systems they use.
