A Blind Woman, Two Wheels and 25,000 Miles
4th Sep, 2008
Dolphin is delighted to sponsor Catherine Birchall (and Bernard Smith who is driving the bike), as she attempts to become the first blind person to circumnavigate the world on a motorbike. Along their route they will be visiting and helping out at various organisations who work in the visual impairment field.
To enable Catherine and Bernard to update their tour website and ensure that they can communicate with friends, media organisations and concerned family members back home. Dolphin sponsored Catherine by supplying a laptop, a copy of Microsoft Office, a copy of Hal (Dolphin's screen reader) pre-installed on the laptop and a copy of Hal on the revolutionary Dolphin Pen USB drive (offering her the ability to run Hal and access any PC with an enabled USB port).
Dolphin will be posting regular updates on how Catherine and Bernard are getting along on this mammoth expedition. So keep checking the www.YourDolphin.com News section to discover just how hard it is for a blind woman on a motorbike to ride around the world.
