As I have discussed in the previous posts in this series, disabled people are supported to learn to travel in a variety of ways and there are a variety of things that we can do while we’re out to try to make sure that everything runs smoothly. But for you non-disabled people out there who want to try to be helpful, what can you do? I thought it would be a useful topic to discuss.

Recently we had a chat here at The Aidis Trust about the image descriptions we put on our blog to help visually impaired people, so I thought it may be useful to write a post about why it’s important to have these image descriptions.
For the first three posts in this series, I have focused on how people with disabilities learn to travel. For the remainder of the series I’ll be focusing on more advanced topics, mainly of interest to our disabled readers, relating to travel.
When you think of comics and graphic novels, one of the first assumptions is that they are a visual medium. Therefore, it only follows that they aren’t accessible to the blind, right? Well, Guy Hasson is trying to change that through his comic book company Comics Empower, that make comic books into audio format for blind and visually impaired people to read.
In the last post, I told you a little bit about the basics of mobility. In this post I’ll be talking about some more advanced skills.
