Technology Evaluation & Training
The majority of jobs require that an individual be able to use a computer. Through our Technology Evaluation and Training Program, people who are vision impaired are trained on the latest technology available, enabling them to participate in academic, employment and independent-living environments.
Ongoing advancements in assistive technology such as screen readers provide speech output for computer access and closed circuit televisions (CCTV’s) allowing printed materials to be enlarged, creating opportunities for the vision impaired. These individuals are able to pursue careers and live independently.
Forty percent of individuals with vision impairments who are employed are now able to use computers on the job. Through this training, blindness is no longer an obstacle in achieving career goals.
