The charity Guide Dogs teamed up with Paralympian Libby Clegg, to create an innovative binaural video, a relevant and emotionally inspiring 3D soundscape experience, that allows to truly understand what it’s like to grow up blind.a-test-of-blind-ambition-2In the video Libby Clegg tells her story…the good – her supportive family, loyal friends and inspiring coaches, and the bad – the school bullies, discouraging teachers and constant naysayer.a-test-of-blind-ambition-3On her 2014 Commonwealth Games 100m and her guide dog Hattie, Libby says: “Having my guide dog Hattie gives me the confidence to train and compete, and live my life how I want. The film mimics some of the experiences I had as a child through to adulthood and I hope it gives those without sight loss an insight into mine and other blind or partially sighted people’s lives and the obstacles we face, and an understanding of how Guide Dogs as a charity can help us to overcome them.”
