Interesting article.

One thing it gets me thinking though, about barring blind people from juries, seeing demeanor is a notoriously unreliable way to assess credibility.   Some pop psychology ideas about it, such as that loud defensive posturing is a sign of innocence, are just wrong.

The blind have fewer distractions, they might even be better in some ways like following voice pitch, at figuring out who is truthful.
