AudioBoo – Facebook for the Visually Impaired

This note is from Alex Nicholls”

Hi John,

Hope you’re well. I have been researching sites that provide useful information to people with disabilities and in particular those who are blind, and I came across the LVATUG blog.

 I thought you might wish to tell your readers more about Audioboo, the social sound network – there are huge numbers of visually impaired people turning to the platform as their social media site of choice. Most people take using the internet, apps and popular social networks for granted. However for people with sight loss, if a tool isn’t accessible, it can make the difference between being able to benefit from using it or simply not… as I’m sure you well know!

I have spoken to a few users, and you can listen to them telling their stories of how Audioboo has changed their lives and the way they communicate. Or, please find a press release below, if you would prefer to publish the story in a more traditional news format.

I would be happy to set up a conversation with a representative from Audioboo if required, but I look forward to hearing whether this might be of interest to your readers.

 Best wishes,

Alex

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say
    is important and everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some
    great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its
    niche. Great blog!
