White Cane Techniques


While browsing Youtube the other day I found this video on the proper use of a white cane.

While it is probably not the best medium to share training with my fellow blind persons, it will offer some insight to any sighted persons as to what we are really doing with those canes.

I did find one particular section quite funny. The use of a white cane in a cafeteria or restaurant. The video shows the blind person alone in the restaurant and successfully navigating their way around, tray and cane in hand. Nice of the other customers to vacate the premises and put the chairs back under the tables.
