A Blind Journalist shares 5 Tips to Keep in Mind when Working with a Blind Employee

A few accommodations can go a long way when you are seeking to include a blind or visually impaired person in the workplace.

Lucy Edwards is a UK based broadcaster, Youtuber that also happens to be blind. She made a video discussing the accommodations that help her do her job as a journalist. I want to point out that every person that has a vision impairment is unique and may need different things. I think that this video gives a general overview of what is commonly helpful in these situations.

I hope that more workplaces will take these first steps to inclusion and consider expanding their group to include people with disabilities.
