The Blind on the Go and at Work. Selected Articles from the Rehabilitation Record.
Rehabilitation Services Administration (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The pamphlet is a collection of four articles. "Tuned-in" Blind People, by C. Stanley Potter, describes at length the Radio Talking Book program of the Minnesota State Services for the Blind and Visually Handicapped and the work of the Communications Center, charged with coordinating all facets of programing and airing. A Private Sonic Boom reports on a sound sensing device installed in "sonic glasses" for the blind. Tasters and Smellers in the Food and Fragrance Industry, by Elisabeth D. Freund, describes how blind people are using their senses of taste and smell in gainful employment in quality control and preference testing for two food processors and a manufacturer of flavoring and perfumery chemicals. The Sky's the Limit, by Kurt Milam, illustrates with a blind meteorologist the possibility that new areas of employment may be opened through specialized training provided counselors for the blind accept their responsibilities.
