- If you are in the way of a blind person say "hi" so they know you're there.
- If a blind person is looking for a seat, tell them where there is a vacant space.
- Ask if they need help (warning not all people might appreciate this)
- "See you later", "Did you watch this movie" doesn't bother Jonathan but some people may be bothered.
- When leading a blind person (across the street), walk normally and let the blind person hang on to your elbow.

This was great. Everybody should listen to this episode before being allowed to graduate high school. What a long way this would go to bridging the awkward gap that so many sighted people are afraid to cross on their own. Thank you.

Idea for another episode:
* Please describe your hardware/software setup for everyday use
* Hints for software developers to have in mind in order to develop accessible software "by default"
* The same as above, but in context of mobile phone, smartphone
