The one who became blind

Now, there is nothing wrong with occupations that have been stereotyped as “jobs that blind people can do.” There are blind people who are happy and satisfied as medical transcriptionists, piano tuners, social workers, packagers and piece workers, computer programers, and lawyers. But the presumption that one is necessarily limited to these professions because of blindness is absolutely false. The following articles are about blind people in different kinds of jobs. Some fit nicely into our stereotypes, others do not. The point is that these blind people have found jobs that suit their interests and abilities…regardless of whether those jobs fit anybody’s notion of what a blind person can, or ought, to do.
