It’s a special Talking Vision this week as we celebrate International White Cane Day, 15 October and take a walk down to the shops with white cane user, Martin Wright. Throughout the walk, Martin explains how the different ways he can employ his cane to navigate the world around him without sight and the independence using a white cane gives him.
Following this we speak with Orientation and Mobility Specialist Luke Price about the types of canes that people use and how people arrive at the decision to use a cane.
Martin is the focus of the podcast series An Interesting Place to Be. The series follows Martins journey through the first year of his vision loss.
