cochlear implant assists blind-deaf teen

Hosts Pete and Nancy explore how cochlear implants can help deaf-blind navigate.

Blind people rely on their hearing for navigation, orientation, social cues and much more.  For a blind person who has also lost much of their hearing, cochlear implants can restore significant function.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey speak with Keith Wiglesworth about being blind, losing his hearing, and how a pair of cochlear implants has expanded his horizons.
