are right there is no doubt that sight helps and is critical in

I have been, and probably will be, castigated for stating that but
Stating the above says nothing, positive or negative, about the
competence of someone who's blind or visually impaired. What it
does say is that you sometimes face the choice of taking forever
to get through something that someone who sees literally sees in
real time. When dealing with a primarily visual medium it only
makes sense to take that into account when you're in a bind that
you need to get out of as promptly as possible.
There is no shame, and no weakness, implied in asking for the most
effective assistance one can get in any given situation where one
needs it. If one has the luxury of time, and wants to learn
something for the sake of learning it, then go methodically
plowing through it (and this applies regardless of whether you
have vision or not). But if I'm in a work situation and I need
something resolved that sight would most likely make faster, it is
absolutely not the job of technical support to treat the request
as though it were a personal aspersion and they should, in fact,
know this themselves if they've been at the job for more than a
brief period of time.

misapprehension that the Constitution is a cage and a

have been and still will be built. Many things that are
entirely Constitutional are not "in the Constitution," but
are allowed under it.
