Local chapter of the National Federation of the Blind

Hello, David Jeppson! I am a member of the my local chapter of the National Federation of the Blind. I am currently using my second computer from CFTB. My first one was a Windows XP and now I'm using a Windows7. I really appreciate the opportunity to have a computer. Without the help from CFTB, there would be no way that I could afford having a computer. I learn so much from being able to use the internet. I am also interested in learning more about the audio descriptive movie loan program. Please send me information. CFTB has improved the lives of countless blind people Thanks so much for being there for all of us!

Thank You !

"I am a rehabilitation teacher for the visually impaired population in Alabama and I have frequently phoned you over the past four years that I have been employed with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services in Birmingham. You with your army of volunteers, donors and generous manufacturers of products that help people who have vision loss are all to be commended for your efforts. I don’t know how often expressions of gratitude from the people who receive your access-ready treasures make it to your ears, but I want to say on behalf of the half-dozen plus whom I know that you are all doing a fabulous job to add to the quality of life of individuals and of our society at large."

My Right Hand in Life

"Thank you for your dedication and commitment to provide wonderful opportunity for the blind and visually impaired. I have been using the computer that I received a little more than a year ago almost daily. My computer is my right hand in life. It opened up the world of opportunities. Thank you very much."   Shiro I. - July 2011

We received a special thank you note from Reid B.:

"Thank you and the staff/volunteers of the Center for sending me this computer! I will try my best to use this machine to improve my life and the lives of my family. The training I am receiving from the New Orleans Lighthouse for the Blind and this equipment, it should go a long way to helping me become more independent and find a job. The Zoom Text software is fabulous! It is already helping me to do something I have never been able to do before: send and receive emails! Also I have been able to read a book online! Having the Internet available to me will also be wonderful as I can search for many things of interest and help me do research for my genealogy. Thanks and God bless!."   August 2010
