''It's extremely distressing,'' he said. ''In crowded environments it's already very challenging. Not only are there large numbers of people but, particularly in an metropolitan area, the sound of traffic and the echoing of the surrounding buildings makes it difficult to hear.

woman because of her impairment.
Mr Gosens said people with a visual impairment already felt vulnerable in public places, let alone when they were being followed.
On Wednesday police released CCTV images of a man they want to question over the assault on the woman during her hour long journey from Ashfield to Gymea on July 17.
''I think more so than the untoward nature of someone following you is the challenge of knowing where they are, and how to describe them, and how to seek assistance. We have no idea who we can seek help from.''

''While being totally blind, I'm six foot three and have a seeing eye dog,'' he said. ''For a young girl with a white cane to be followed, I really, really feel for her.''
The woman, 23, told police that she was on her way to Ashfield station when a man warned her of construction ahead and steered her in a different direction. When she got into an elevator at the station, she felt someone touch her breast.
Mr Gosens also has a 16 year old daughter with a visual impairment. He said he sympathised with the woman targeted in Sydney.
"She's a vulnerable person it is a particularly appalling sort of crime to commit against a person like this," he said.
The woman got off Lacoste Brown Polo the train at Gymea and later reported the incident to Ashfield police.
Anyone with information about the man's identity should contact Ashfield Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
