I recently have seen an increase in people with echolocation. One was Daniel Kitsch, the other was a boy named Lucas Murray. There was also 2 other kids I will post in a few minutes, when I find the links. But I am wondering can people who are blind use "clicking" to get around in life?? Or is it only for a certain few. I know you gain a sense after you lose a sense, but is it possible for all blind people to do this?? It would change the way how seeing impaired individuals get around in this world?

These are just a couple of people.

Most can. My mom thought that the 'miracle boy' documentary is a joke and she's been blind from her early teens. Of course there is some who don't master it quite as well.

Just wondering, since you have someone in your family that is blind, did you ever ask what she saw when she used clicking for echo mobility? Not trying to be stereotypical, but did she sort of see like tracers of where the object is, like in daredevil?
