Computers for the Blind

  • Mission Statement

    The mission of Computers for the Blind is to open the world of information technology to persons who are blind or visually impaired by providing computer equipment, software and training.

    It is our hope that all with a visual impairment may experience the technology in a positive and productive manner.
    Specifically we want to enable:
    Ability to independently manage personal affairs.
    Access to communication with others.
    A learning environment where information is just a click away.
    Employment opportunities by developing knowledge, skills, and marketable abilities.
