Aaron Marsaw, a blind lawyer in Hamilton who is on the CNIB Ontario division board of directors, says CNIB library staff have been exemplary in making the services accessible, but that digitization is a need whose time has come.

"With all of the books on cassette or braille, they have to be shipped back and forth, while nowadays most people have computers," he notes.

Text on screen: Aaron Marsaw: Lawyer

Aaron: My name is Aaron Marsaw. I am currently a lawyer.
Visual: On the screen, we see Aaron sitting in an office.
Aaron: I lost my eye sight in 1985 due to a brain tumor and cyst behind the optic nerve. My initial reaction when I lost my eye sight was one of frustration, anger and depression. I think all at different stages.
Visual: The screen fades to black then back to Aaron
Aaron: I think the most important services that I’ve received from the staff and volunteers at CNIB have been the orientation and mobility because that’s given me a sense of independence and how I move about in the community and generally I think also the library has been a tremendous service.
Visual: On the screen, we see a walking stick. As the camera moves up we see that it’s Aaron walking in a hallway.
Visual: We now see a man in front of a microphone recording his voice as he reads a book.
Visual: We now see rows and rows of files in a library.
Aaron: For example in law school a number of books were put into Daisy format for me. And that was tremendously helpful because law books as you could imagine can get quite thick and quite cumbersome to work through and the Daisy technology was excellent for being able to work through different parts of laws very quickly and easily.
Visual: We see Aaron using on a Daisy Machine.
Visual: We now see Aaron sitting in an office.
Visual: The screen fades to white.
Narrator: CNIB has one of the largest libraries in the world for people with vision loss, with thousands of titles in braille, printbraille and talking book format, as well as access to telephone, reference and online services.
Visual: We see Aaron in an office.
Aaron: I do feel CNIB has helped me to improve my quality of life immensely.
