Gabriel's caters to those with low/no vision

Posted: Updated:

Guam - New Vision Guam collaborated with Gabriel's House of Pasta in Hagatna today to launch three menus that accommodate those with low-to-no vision. According to NVG member Anthony Siguenza, the Italian-American eatery has Braille, audio, and large font menus.

Siguenza, who has been legally blind for 20 years, is excited to make more steps towards independence, including choosing his own meal. "It's just a little more awareness and more education for the people that are blind, and for the businesses to be a little more conscientious about how to help and primarily to make life a little bit more accommodating for those that are vision impaired," he explained.

An estimated 500 people on Guam are blind and 2,000 have low-vision. Siguenza hopes more businesses will cater to him and his peers.
