Low Vision Magazines and Newsletters

Dialogue Magazine This is a subscription magazine with some sample articles available online. Blind Skills Incorporated out of Salem, Oregon, publishes a magazine every two months entitled Dialogue (A World of Ideas for Visually Impaired People of All Ages). However, you can receive this magazine from the Library for the Blind, or contact Blind Skills at 800-860-4224 or 503-581-4224. This magazine receives submissions from people with low vision on topics such as, “Living with Low-Vision”, “Learning Braille the Hard Way”, “Achieve Self-Empowerment through Martial Arts”, “Technology AT Answer Book”. This month’s column discusses new releases of Screen Readers. Another column is entitled “Portable CCTV Offers New Features and Convenience”. There are special feature articles on personal stories. There’s also a section on obstacles and opportunities. Also a section on what’s new and where to get it and of course editorials and editor’s welcome. I strongly recommend looking at this magazine and possibly making a submission. This is a great resource for people with low-vision.
