We don't need a "special" cup of any type.

A perfect example why the NFB exists, and why we need relentless positive
action to educate the uneducated and lost sighted persons about blindness,
if and so we can achieve equality, opportunity, security, and independence
in each and every aspect of society and life!

Why do we really need a special cup for the blind and visually impaired
anyway?! I'm as blind as they get and yet I've managed quite well with the
same cups and glasses that (gasp) the sighted use.; and I'm not a fluke in
this regard. I hope John explained blindness as it really is and not the way
most of the sighted believe it to be.

: Hi there,
: 
: My name is Mu-Hua Cheng. I am currently taking a course at the University
of Michigan where my group and I are designing a cup (either a drinking cup
or a measuring cup) for the visually impaired and blind populations. We are
searching for potential users of our product to interview about their
experiences with assistive and non-assistive technologies related to pouring
liquids. We are hoping to talk face-to-face, but are open to telephone
conversations if this makes scheduling easier.
: 
: While we are interested in collecting data as early as possible (within
the next couple weeks), our course runs until mid-December and we would
certainly be interested in talking with as many potential users as we can
throughout the semester. Ann Arbor residents are most convenient for
face-to-face interviews, but a couple of my group members have cars so we
may be able to venture out a little.
: 
: Contact me at the phone number or email listed below. Thanks so much in
advance for your help.
