I'm dismayed by how little publicity there seemed to be about this opportunity to comment. I received the info recently (almost the deadline) from a friend who forwarded it. For such an important step forward, there don't seem to be that many comments made and today's the deadline. I receive mail from the listserves and newsletters of the American Council of the Blind, National Federation of the Blind, Association for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired, and the Orientation and Mobility Specialists Association and I don't remember seeing any information about this opportunity to comment on any of those lists, which include many individuals who are blind or who have low vision and those who provide instruction to individuals who are blind or have low vision. It seems that more effort to get input from individuals with disabilities is needed as you continue on development of this strategic plan.
