How it Started
Bob Langford was blinded in an accident at age 16. Instead of quitting, he worked hard to achieve many things until he earned a Doctorate's Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation. Later in life, Bob discovered how computers could overcome many obstacles and he wanted to share this gift with others.Read Bob's Journey
