More than 20 million Americans cope with vision loss, and that number is growing due to baby boomers reaching retirement age and beyond and higher survival rates for premature babies, many with multiple disabilities. Paul Schroeder of American Foundation for the Blind discusses efforts to be sure that technology is accessible to this population. Schroeder stated, "Vision loss...can be very tough and it is difficult for people to adjust to. Most people lose their site... as they are aging."
