OK, some may remember me from my request for stuff about the amnesiac. I appreciated the responses immensely. In the same vein, I have another character who has been stricken blind (I have a habit of giving really mean flaws to my characters)... sort of. ^^;

Regardless, he cannot see, and since my setting is that of something akin to high fantasy, I must know how people dealt with losing their sight in such times. Preferrably without the use of animals, but it would not cramp my story much to add one.

Moreover, what ways might a blind man manage to be a scholar in times without brail? Or is that so impossible that it's rediculous without some kind of technological or magical help?
