NFB’s Database of Usable Consumer Electronics

How cool is this? Yup, there I go again with the how cool is this? But come on, how cool is this?

The NFB is compiling a list of blind guy-accessible appliances. Do you know what this means? If you’re shopping for a new washer/dryer/dishwasher/other household gadget, but you don’t want to get stuck with something flat screen, and don’t feel like explaining again and again to the store clerk that no I don’t have a sighty at home, and I need to feel stuff, and no I don’t have any goddamn vision, you can look at this list, and walk in the store and ask if they have an x brand model y appliance, and if they have what you’re looking for, you’re almost guaranteed to get something you should be able to use! How cool, I tell ya, how cool?! I hope it gets updated on a pretty regular basis, because I think that’s a great idea.

Check it out, see what you think.
