"Your audio description of the performing arts has raised the level of enjoyment by our community on to a higher, richer level. VocalEyes, in opening our ears to such wonderful experiences have ensured that another rich recreational pursuit is now fully accessible to us.
You have levelled the proverbial playing field to truly make equal opportunity a reality for those coping with sight loss to enjoy the performing arts."
