For the trainer to wear a blind fold it shows whether the dog is indeed guiding them properly or they are in a sense directing the dog. Some students have washed out at a guide dog school because they see an object such as a lamp post and to the sighted or ones who have residual vision it looks like the dog will run them right into it. One student was constantly overriding the dog’s directions because he, the student saw the object and decided that the dog was not going to guide him around it. I never forgot the incident where the person driving me to pick up supplies saw my guide dog and I headed for a cement garbage can at quite a speed, he said,, “I was too far away to yell out anything then your dog just took you around it. I almost had a heart attack watching the entire thing unfold.” Getting back to screen readers, I do have some residual vision and can see things on the display it is just after about 30 seconds of reading something my eyes get tired, thus just use JAWS instead.
