19. Your significant other need not give up on TV and movies. Descriptive Video Service (DVS) provides

audio track narration of many TV shows and a large roster of movies. I would guess this may not be high on your lists of immediate concerns right now, but in time your pal may like to check it out. It was first pioneered at public TV WGBH station in Boston in the early 1990's. DVS is easily acessed by turning on the SAP (separate audio channel) channel button on your TV.

Link for more info:

"The Descriptive Video Service (DVS) is a major United States producer of video description, which makes visual media, such as television programs, feature films, and home videos, more accessible to people who are blind or otherwise visually impaired. DVS often is used to describe the product itself. It is a special audio track that includes extra descriptions of what is happening on screen for the visually impaired."

P.S. Dear snot, I would like to add my voice to the many here who are distraught to hear of the new direction your life is taking, but are encouraging you to seek out the myriad resources available to one of the oldest and most supported of disabling conditions. I have been amoung people with disabilities all my life and know many people who are blind or visually impaired. They lead successful, fulfilling lives. Keep your courage up!
