There are bits of film out there already like this, although in the more
interesting ones the blind person narrates for themselves.

  Ya, video is a powerful medium for those who can see it. Maybe some kind of 
  demo with a blind person sitting at a computer using a screen reader and 
  internet explorer. A sighted narator could help narate while the blind 
  person accesses a series of pages (from easily accessible to inaccessible). 
  The camera would provide the screen shots and the narrator and voice 
  synthesizer provide the sound track.
