Kentucky School for the Blind students have new tool to navigate their neighborhood

Students at the Kentucky School for the Blind are getting a new tool to help them find their way around their neighborhood.

Damon Bards tells how he used the system Friday afternoon: "I went from the KSB building to the bakery, and how I did that was, I turned left across the driveway, then I went to the corner of Frankfort and crossed that, then i turned across Frankfort, and I ended up at the bakery."

Bards, along with 65 other students, are using the one-of-a-kind map to learn their way around the neighborhood.

The map features 3-D figures of buildings, landscaping, fences, and traffic lights along eight blocks of Frankfort Avenue.

The map was a gift to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the American Printing House for the Blind.
