This week Stella chats with Sandra Knight, who is heading off to Spain as part of a five person Australian blind tennis team for the International Friendlies Tournament.
The results from the tournament will determine the sport’s first world rankings.
Sandra is an all-round sports woman and participates in 10 pin bowling and hiking, but she only ever dreamed of participating in tennis. Until now.
Also on the program, Scott Jacobs, Government Relations Advisor at Vision Australia, reports back on the Australian Blindness Forum (ABF) summit. The summit, recently held in Melbourne, featured a wide range of organisations and consumers in attendance, including the Minister for Communications Mitch Fifield, who made an exciting announcement in relation to audio description.
And, Julie Scott from the Vision Shop is on the program talking about talking microwaves.
