This week, there’s more listener feedback on the iOS app Oko, which helps blind people with traffic signals that are inaccessible. By contrast, we hit the streets of Budapest to hear what their accessible traffic signals are like.

There’s more chatter about Apple things, plus a very different perspective from last week about the nature of blindness.

Last week on the show, we talked about a new cane. So it’s only right and fair that this week, we give guide dogs some airtime. Bonnie Mosen is doing the feature interview on this episode. She speaks with Melissa Allman of the Seeing Eye in a fascinating and wide-ranging discussion about a range of guide dog issues, particularly as they affect people in the United States.

There is plenty more too. Thank you for listening and Bonnie and I look forward to bringing you Living Blindfully episode 237.
