Technology Gives Blind Employees The Chance To Prove Themselves In
April 11, 2005
AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND--Monday's New Zealand Herald featured a story about how blind and partially-sighted people are proving that they can be valuable assets in the workplace.
Much of this has to do with new technologies that are making it possible for such workers to do nearly anything sighted workers can do.
"When I show people the technology at my disposal, they are blown away," said Fraser Alexander, who works for the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind while he earns his Master of Business. "Most people are still shocked blind people can use a computer!"
