Thanks for the info WS. So many of us take things like being able to see for granted. My niece is also blind, she just turned 7 last week - I feel so sad when I see her she's such a lovely little girl, life can be so cruel can't it?
You should be proud of yourself - you seem to have achieved so much! A lot more than most able-bodied people! ...I wish I was as good a coder as you!
I will definitely get your views on my next project, as I think there may be some blind people interested in it and I want to make sure it's as accessible as possible for them.
A lot of the time we are restricted by the platforms we use (such as vbulletin), but this site I want to build myself (*panics!*) as hopefully it isn't going to be
difficult as it's basically a site of members profiles (with friends lists etc), along with a bit of a mini-blogging. I have pretty much decided on using cakePHP for it - wish me luck! (I'll need it as I am just a php nube right now!).
Thanks again for your help, I will have a good look at the site you posted.
Also I feel compelled to mention this (I can't help myself!) but a few years ago I wasn't feeling so great, and ended up doing a 'detox' - well I call it a detox but it is basically a way of life/health regime, where I had to cut out things like sugar, yeast, lactose etc - my dietician who was advising me on it said that no matter what 'illness' people suffer from this 'detox' would nearly always help, as it helps rebuild and repair your immune system, and so can help with a whole host of problems, esp when conventional medicine fail us. She herself was 'blinded' on some days as she suffered with candida related problems herself that effected her eyesight as well. I know it sounds far-fetched, but I am a firm believer in the importance of diet and how it can effect us - specifically how all the 'crap' in modern food can have a negative impact on us (I know as I am living proof - some things I just can't eat because they make me feel like crap). I'm just mentioning it in case you feel it is worth a try, and while I'm not saying it's a cure, it may help sustain (or even repair a little bit) the level of eyesight you have now.
If you fancy having a go, I've typed it up here:
