Many people with serious visual impairments can travel independently, using a wide range of tools and techniques. Tools such as the white cane with a red tip are used to improve mobility. A small number of people employ guide dogs to assist in mobility. These dogs are trained to navigate around various obstacles. However, the helpfulness of guide dogs is limited by the inability of dogs to understand complex directions.
Access technology such as screen readers, screen magnifiers and refreshable Braille displays enable the blind to use mainstream computer applications and mobile phones. The availability of assistive technology is increasing, accompanied by concerted efforts to ensure the accessibility of information technology to all potential users, including the blind. macOS and iOS also come with a built-in screen reader called VoiceOver, while Google TalkBack is built in to most Android devices.
The movement towards greater web accessibility is opening a far wider number of websites to adaptive technology, making the web a more inviting place for visually impaired surfers.
Blind people may use talking equipment such as thermometers, watches, clocks, scales, calculators, and compasses.
They may also enlarge or mark dials on devices such as ovens and thermostats to make them usable.
