Among working-age blind adults approximately 70 percent remain unemployed. A leading barrier is that too many people with low vision are not being taught Braille, a skill which has been found to be correlated with successful employment for the blind.
This “Resource for the Working” link from the National Federation of the Blind includes resources for both an individual with blindness and the employer. For those seeking employment, this resource includes a listing of training and technology centers.
