Analysis of how three duos of sighted Nursing students and blind people perceived communication in free recorded interaction. It was based on Discourse Analysis with an analytic tool constituted by an interview after the communication moment and by concepts characteristic of the reference framework. The analysis process revealed discourse formations about communication, visual impairment and social inclusion. The communication moment was assessed positively, constructing paraphrases in their discourse. Recording is a factor of emotional change at the start of the interaction for the Nursing students and blind people alike. It provoked meaning in the discourse of two blind persons and one student through founding silence. A discussion is started about the theme and about the incorporation of new technologies for Nursing research.
