Site for shopping online is adapted to the visually impaired!

Two Rochester Institute of Technology students are launching an online wardrobe site for blind and visually impaired people.

White Cane Label is a nonprofit effort to help blind people shop online and keep track of their clothes without the help of a sighted friend.

The site's interface will be driven by sound and text instead of images.

The retailers are relying 100 percent on designer donations for inventory, but will charge full price to stop sighted buyers from taking advantage of bargains.
