Eyes On Success

Eyes On Success

Eyes On Success presents information, demonstrations and discussion of products, services, and life experiences that help people with vision loss live independently and productively.  Topics range from detailed descriptions of adaptive equipment and programs such as screen readers and portable Braille displays to discussions of various accessible reading materials to personal stories of engaging in extreme sports and other hobbies. There's something for everyone on Eyes On Success.

Eyes On Success is hosted and produced by Peter Torpey and Nancy Goodman Torpey and distributed by WXXI Reachout Radio in Rochester, NY.  Nancy and Pete speak from personal experiences.  As retired physicists, and self-proclaimed "geeks" Pete, who is blind carries the heavy tech load, and Nancy who is sighted provides the warmth and color commentary.  If you would like to share an idea for a show topic, or ask a question of the hosts, send an email to hosts@EyesOnSuccess.net, or Follow them on Twitter at: @_EyesOnSuccess and Like them on Facebook.
