In this image, which is from a film, Helen is seated in a wood-paneled meeting room, testing a communications device for the American Foundation for the Blind. She has on a plain, dark dress and hat with many feathers. To her left is Polly Thompson, who has her hand on Helen's arm and may be in the middle of signing a message. On Helen's right is M. Robert Barnett, Executive Director of AFB. Four other people, three men and one woman, are also in the room, watching Helen carefully.
