About COMPUTERS FOR THE BLIND

The mission of Computers for the Blind (CFTB) is to open the world of information technology to persons who are blind or visually impaired by providing computer equipment, software and training.
Computers for the Blind provides refurbished computers to persons who are blind or visually impaired who would otherwise not be able to obtain one. These computers are donated by individuals and businesses in the DFW area. Volunteers wipe the hard drives clean, and refurbish the computers and install the software that make them accessible to persons who are blind or low vision.
