What do you call someone who can't hear or see you? As if they are deaf and blind. What is a word describing both please?

    Too late to inquire I guess, but were you looking for a figurative expression or a noun for a person who is afflicted with both disabilities.

  • Normally it's "deaf and blind" or "deaf-blind". I've never seen a single word.
