Absolutely; this website was designed for and by blind people for exactly the reasons you describe.  The amount of information they've been able to gather is amazing.

A blind person doesn't ever have to be without resources for directions on packaging. Checking the website of most companies will find this, but the following site has most things most people would want to make, including nutrition information, at least on the things I've checked there. Also note that different cake mixes require different things and have some things not common to all mixes, so it's good advice to refer the cook to the package (or website) for specifics.

But check this site out, it's very useful for blind and visually impaired folks who want to cook.

Now, I have a complaint.  I didn't think I would, but there you are: Any recipe that says tp prepare cake mix according to directions you cannot read is useless for blind people.  Either you include the directions in the recipe, or don't bother to contribute them at all.  This annoys me no end.
When blind people live alone and don't have sighted help around, you can't magic your eyes to read directions on cake mix boxes.
