Re:Is there forum to cntact among people blind in one eye?

I realise that the person from China posted way back in 2006: but I hope he is still on the list or someone is in contact with him. Since 2006 a lot of things have improved for the visually impaired in China.

One Plus One Cultural Exchange Centre based in Beijing has set up a radio station: it broadcasts 'pan-disability' radio programmes weekly (check China National Radio for details. You're looking for 'China Disability Observed'. I believe in the Beijing area it goes out at 6am on a Sunday morning. It is also available as a podcast. There are other 'on line' programmes too.

There is also a fortnightly enewsletter produced by a man named Mr Ye Zijie which talks about living as a visually impaired person worldwide. - which can also be accessed via the same web site. Its called 'Talang'. I am one of the producers of material for 'Talang' (but I am not Chinese and I don't speak mandarin - but I am partially sighted.

It is currently in its trial period but there is to be a One Plus One programme called 'VI Helpline' - and funding permitting in due course this will also have an off line helpline.

I am a founder member of a UK - China charity 'China Vision' and I can be contacted at or

There is also a web site known (in English) as 'love blindness' - but I don't at the moment have its url.

Since these postings were earlier in the year has anything been started? I will start trying to put something together with some of the social network platforms out there - I think it would be really helpful. If there is somethign already out there please post on this thread and we can help get the word out!

Re:Is there forum to cntact among people blind in one eye?

I was just checking out Google to see if there was an organization that helped people blind in one eye, and came across your question. So I guess the answer is why don't we start one.
It has been a little over a year since I lost my vision in my left eye. There are some sensations that happen sometimes that make me crazy. Sometimes it isn't such a big deal. But there is a huge difference between how I am able to function in places I know well, and when I am in places I do not spend time in. I lose much ability to be comfortable in time and space. Anyway, would look forward to your experience with sight in one eye.

I Once Was Blind, But Now Can See!
Veretekk Now Accessible To The Visually Impaired...

As part of an ongoing corporate initiative, we have completed adjustments to all of the Portal Control Panels (PCPs) so that they are all compatible with
screen reader software used by the visually impaired to read websites. This is an important milestone for Veretekk as it keeps us on target with our mission
to provide unparalleled marketing tools to people from all walks of life. You may be surprised to know that Veretekk has a lot of blind subscribers. These
improvements make the system even more accessible to all of them.

So if your vision is fine, what does all of this mean to you? A lot, actually. These improvements just opened up a whole new market segment for you to market
to! Veretekk, the only system of it's kind, is now totally accessible to the blind. You can capitalize on this by marketing to the blind and growing your
"Thanks!... Thanks!... Thanks!... Yessss! Wowsee Wow!... Thanks Tom, and Mike for fixing the drop down menus in the portal control panels so that blind
people are able to configure their portals. It works perfectly... Just great! Now that I have found this new accessible part of the Veretekk system, I
am getting used to using the functions. It's a most of the time, difficult task dealing with blindness, or any major handicap for that matter. I think
it's an even harder task trying to use the computer, and the internet... let alone trying to make a little money, or run any kind of business on the internet.
Most people don't realize what handicapped people go through, and in my case, totally blind people, trying to use their computers, and the internet. When
I found Veretekk, I was blown away with the awesomeness of this powerful program. I thought, "Wow... I finally found something that a blind person can
use to market on the internet, and it really works! When I ran into the ever present snag for blind people... links, and dropdown menus that just don't
show up in the screen readers interface (software that allows blind people to read websites, and computer programs) I was Sooo discouraged! So... I sent
Tom, Veretekk's CEO, some info about the problems that blind people go through when surfing the internet, and trying to interact with websites. I was totally
shocked when he actually said that he would do something about the problem! Not only that!... He actually called me! Where can you find that kind of support?...
A Call From The CEO of the company! Veretekk is totally awesome... It really works... and It is very affordable! The round the clock live training is top
notch! What's even better... They tell you the whole truth about internet marketing... It takes time to be successful. Thanks Tom!... Thanks Mike!... You
don't know just how much I appreciate your efforts. Veretekk is pure marketing Awesomeness!"
