Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A guest speaker spoke to a support group for blind and visually impaired people in Fargo.

Karla Pederson works for the FM Community Theater. She helps people with little to no sight enjoy productions like any other person.

Pederson describes all the scenes and paints vibrant details of what is going on in each performance by talking into a headset. She says although some people can enjoy the show by only listening, it is better to know visually what is going on.

Pederson says, "they have a little unit you know like a personal little unit and it has, it is similar to what you might have seen people use at a church when they are hard of hearing, this has two channels."
