Communication between multiple people talking to each other in person, like during face-to-face business meetings, does not only consist of the spoken language and therefore requires more than theauditory channel to fully participate. Blind people who take part in this kind of meetings rely on the other participants to explicitly speak out any important non-verbal cues, like deictic gestures, which has proven tobe especially challenging in heated discussions as people tend to fall back to their usual behavior of usingnon-verbal communication (NVC) to support their arguments.
