YouTube Videos for People who are Blind and Visually Impaired



YouTube© has a vast array of videos on all conceivable subjects, ranging from full-length movies to clips of people singing in their bathrooms, and everything in between. There are many videos on YouTube made about blindness or blindness-related topics, such as assistive technology. 

The following is a starter list of videos for or by people who are blind and visually impaired, originally compiled by Jonn Paris-Salb, an APH Ex Officio Trustee from California. This is meant to be a resource for teachers, parents, students, and others who are blind or visually impaired or who work in the field of blindness. This is not meant to be a comprehensive list yet, but videos will be added to this list in the future.

All videos are free to view, although some videos may begin with a short advertisement, which you can sometimes bypass. The time provided in the list is the actual video time, not including the advertisement.

Note: If the table format proves too difficult or cumbersome to use, it may be revamped in the future.

Description of table: The table has 4 columns. From left to right: category or subject; title of video as a link to the video; presenter or creator; runtime.
