Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Affordable Computers with the Assistive Software You Need

Wednesday, July 14 - 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Today’s technology has created a world where people with disabilities can participate on a more level playing field. Having the appropriate equipment allows someone to handle personal affairs independently and provides a viable means of employment. However, it can be a monumental task to afford this specialized equipment. The ability to purchase a computer, have assistive technology installed and the training to use it, can be a tall order for someone with vision loss.

Computers for the Blind, a nonprofit organization based in Texas, has been refurbishing computers, installing needed assistive software and providing training since 1995. To help us learn more about this valuable organization, we welcome Jennifer Keen, director of operations at Computers for the Blind. Ms. Keen shares the things you need to know so you, too, can obtain the technology you need for your life and future.

You’ll learn the answers to these questions and more:

  • What types of computers are available?
  • What assistive software is installed on computers?
  • How much do the computers cost?
  • Is financial assistance available?
  • How do you order a computer?
