Vision Loss Audio Recordings
While with Low Vision Focus @ Hadley, I rewrote audio recordings they put together in the 1990’s.

If you’re interested in reading the script or listening to the production, but haven’t read the original short story, you should read that first.
Auburn University’s Radio Flyer Theatre produced this script, which premiered on an episode Everything Sounds:
