Media have a large impact on peoples’ lives, and an especially high influence in learning and learning processes. Exposure to English through media can have multiple benefits for language learning, however, the question we are interested in is: Considering that media are a platform predominately geared towards the sighted, does language acquisition through media apply to the blind and visually impaired? Part of the study geared towards answering this question was conducted with blind and visually impaired secondary school learners through case studies. Results from the case studies show that blind and visually impaired learners can benefit from media exposure when it comes to learning the English language.
