My name is Kathy Eble.  I want to introduce you to Home Readers, a service
>> for the blind and visually impaired, serving the blind community 
>> since 1996. We are a not for profit 501 c3 organization.  The mission 
>> of Home Readers is to further the independence of the blind and 
>> visually impaired. Our services provide a way for blind and low 
>> vision individuals to shop independently through a wide variety of 
>> mail order catalogs.  Our catalogs are free to customers and they are 
>> read by pleasant sounding readers who become the eyes for their 
>> listeners, by describing products, colors and details to make 
>> products come alive. When you use our catalogs you still get the 
>> extra description that often is missing from websites and catalogs. 
>> This allows you to know what you are purchasing.  If you are a web 
>> user our catalogs can compliment your visit to websites and our special
codes should work on the catalog company's websites.
>> The clothing catalogs include Blair Men's and Women's, Lands' End, L.L.
