Description of The Unseen Minority: A Social History of Blindness in the United States: 25. The Loneliest People

Deaf-blindness and the isolation it creates have posed perhaps the most difficult challenges to workers for people who are blind or visually impaired. Public awareness of their plight has come largely from the stories of Laura Bridgman, in the 19th century, and Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan Macy, in the 20th. This chapter describes AFB's efforts to reach and serve deaf-blind persons and the development of machines and techniques to enhance their ability to communicate.
