Baidu Working With the Blind

Baidu is working together with the China Association of the Blind to create a "barrier-free" service for the blind (hat tip to China Challenges). I am very interested to see what this project, called the "Blind's Lane Program," will turn out to be. While the headline mentions a search engine, Baidu is far more accessible than its competitors like Sina and Sohu and already is very popular among the blind in China. In any case, its nice to see a major Chinese website taking interest in the disabled and helping out.
