Vendors of General Products for Visually Impaired or blind on Such A Site
This is a page containing a list of Vendors Selling either general Products, canes, CCTV’s, sunglasses, binocular devices , telescopes and talking appliances. For those wanting a list of vendors selling computer software, hardware or peripherals, there is a separate page on Such A Site for those vendors. See that page by going back one level of Such A Site, to the page on Vendors for items which might assist or be enjoyed by someone who is visually impaired or blind.
The list below was copied from the website of living well with low vision which is sponsored by Prevention of Blindness I have added a few vendors to their list making it even longer. But the vendors of computers and assistive technology which appeared on this same list have been extracted and placed on a list of their own. Each listing below gives the names, a few words of description of what they provide, the address and phone numbers are listed and, in most instances, if you click or enter on the company name, it takes you to their website.
Here is the most comprehensive list of vendors I have ever seen.

One or two might also sell CCTVs, which are electronic magnifying devices with a camera and screen making up the unit. Some are large and some are portable. The software vendors sell programs for screen reading, print enhancement, voice input, or Braille input or output. The list is alphabetical and if you click or enter on the company’s name, most times it takes you to that company’s website.
