New Beginnings with Vision-Aid (Part 4)

Vision-Aid Academy LogoVision-Aid’s overall mission is to enable, educate, and empower people with vision impairment. Part of that commitment includes connecting their community to the expanding possibilities of the digital world. Vision-Aid has built a wide variety of training for its students. Classes are available both in-person and online through Vision-Aid Academy.

Basic

  • introduction to computers;
  • computer applications; and
  • assistive technologies for people with vision impairment.

Intermediate

  • Microsoft Office (including advanced Excel training);
  • Internet;
  • specialized software applications; and
  • mobile technologies.

Advanced

Students can participate regardless of financial circumstances. Willing students have access to equipment and expert volunteers. Advanced students can develop their skills through additional projects. Real-world experience is available through Vision-Aid’s new Digital Accessibility Testing and Training Center.

The confidence gained from this experience has led to industry jobs. Vision-Aid’s hope is to continue building students’ confidence through more projects. I sincerely hope for Vision-Aid’s continued success. You can read more about Vision-Aid’s programs via its new brochure, “Vision-Aid at a Glance” or via the Vision-Aid Website.
