My computer has lifted a weight from my shoulder

I would like to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the laptop. Having this opportunity means a lot to me. For a while I have struggled with schooling. I went a bit slower than the others, so a lot of times I couldn't finish my schoolwork. I wasn't turning my work in or would turn it in late. With this computer, however, a lot of weight has been lifted from my shoulders. It is easier now to turn in my work because I can just ask my teachers to email my assignments to me. The work I

I feel as if I have been given an extra pair of eyes and the ability to succeed.

I truly appreciate all of the volunteers from Computers for the Blind in providing individuals with much needed equipment. For many years I have struggled with gradual sight loss, as one must go back and re-learn new skills and regain your independence to fulfill everyday obligations. Sometimes not knowing what resources are available or the lack of economic resources can be contributing factors that keep you from being able to fully regain your independence.

You've Made a Real Difference for Me

Thank you to the people at Computers for the Blind for making this possible. I would have never been able to afford the hardware and software.

It has been a life-changer for me and I am sure that there are many other blind individuals that have benefited from this program. Thank you very much!


Without help from CFTB, I could not afford having a computer.

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 ran Windows XP and now I'm using Windows 7. 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. CFTB has improved the lives of countless blind people. Thanks so much for being there for all of us!

I will try my best to use this machine to improve my life and the lives of my family.

Thank you to the staff and 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!

On behalf of those who have gotten a computer, you are doing a fabulous job!

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 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.
