Please accept my apology, I didn’t know that I had to be exactly at 11 am.

The documentary is very interesting. What surprised me the most was the technique that the boy used, called echo-location. It is amazing, he taught a technique that also dolphins and bats use. Echo-location is known for ages, but no one (I mean a human) has used it before. Also it suprised me that every object had a different sound and that the sound made him more aware of danger.
I think that blind children/children with low vision should be taught echo-location at school, because this incredible technique can enable to live them a normal life and do things that they can’t do without vision. For example they could play basketball, skateboarding or even drive a car.
