Website Accessibility and me

Submitted by Pheo de Montford on Mon, 06/12/2017 - 11:13

Sat in front of my computer I closed my eyes, placed my fingers on the keyboard, but now what? 

Without my sight, I am totally lost on how to navigate this or any website. Sure I can just about touch type, but I am totally reliant on the mouse or my touch screen. What about sounds? What if I was watching a video and I couldn't hear the sound, how would I be able to understand what was going on? Until you have a disability you cannot fully experience what it is like not to be able to do something that most of us take for granted.
