John Greer

My name is John and I own a website called Blind Crawler at www.blindcrawler.com. The website helps blind and visually impaired with education. The blind community has over a 70 percent unemployment rate, and much of it is due to the lack of education both in the blind not knowing what is available to them, and to the sighted community not understanding that a majority of the blind do have a high level of education and are able to perform in a job the same or better than their sighted counterparts. The largest barrier to employment for the blind is the extremely high cost of assistive technology.
