How do you describe a bowl of fruit to a blind person?

Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, concorde grapes, peaches, pears, bananas, pineapples

Plus cream, Coolwhip, honey and sugar, and paper towels

a knife, spoon and fork

Go to the local biggest produce store and get a couple of each, then put samples of each uncut and precut in seperate bowls.

Add an afternoon at a picnic table and voila....presto.... snappo
good eating and learning.

Good for you to do this for them.

Have them feel the fruit, the shape and textures and best of all have them smell the fruit. Then let them feel how they feel against each other fruit in the bowl.

I just learned that blind people don't even dream about objects. It makes sense...

I don't think you CAN describe that to a blind person, unless they have FELT what "round" is or "sharp" or "soft", even still... they will never be able to truly know what a bowl of fruit LOOKS like. They can only imagine what things look like from what they have felt in their hands. They will never know what a "red apple" looks like, they will never know colors because you cannot touch color.

Interesting question...

You would have them wash their hands & then let them "feel the fruit" just as if you wanted them to know what you look like, you would let them "feel your face". You could also describe it to them, just as you would the color of your hair which cannot be discerned by touch.

Give them the fruit to let them experience themselves, also help them by telling them the colour of the fruit and the shape , better, ask them to eat it.:)

with taste and smell ,,they are only lacking one sense ,,,

allow them to use their other senses. Too easy.

with lots of details

U let them feel the fruit and smell it . SImple

depends what kind of fruit is in it. I'd describe the texture and shape, and I'd use a lot of adjectives (sweet, juicy...etc).

Allow them to touch, taste and smell the fruit. But if a person has been blind since birth how would they know the color of a "red" apple or a "green" apple?...red could be described as an emotion such as passion or as heat, hot or flushing. The green could be described by the cool feel of grass in the shade on a warm day. Everyone can experience sensations invoked by emotion and vice-versa.

You can't describe it visually. You can only describe it using the senses they have available. Typically touch and smell. You can describe the aroma and the texture.

Describe the items using the 4 senses other than sight.

Describe how each item tastes, feels, smells, sounds. If possible have the person taste, feel, smell, and listen to each of the fruit.

Like feeling the clothed panted bottom of someone with the worst case of hemorrhoids you've ever felt in your life.
