Okay, here I go being radical.  Lol.  I don't care if you have 
the greatest tongue click or finger snap or whatever the heck.  
YOU STILL NEED to use a cane or a dog.  Period, exclamation 
point.  That "Flash Sonar" or whatever, will not detect 
everything, including stairs.  Or holes in the ground.  And what 
if you're in a noisy environment.  I can detect stuff by my face 
quite often, but I still trust either my cane or dog more than 
the sometimes facial detection.  It's no wonderful thing, in my 
ever so humble opinion for blind folks to brag about how they 
don't have to use canes or dogs.  It's misleading, and it's 
dangerous.  Okay, I'll hop off my soapbox now.  Lol.    Debby
