Job opportunities for the visually impaired

I am always asked
“How do I find a job if I am visually impaired? “ and usually my answer would be one full of positivism as that’s the way I feel that all is possible, but I didn’t have any real tips on how or where to find a job knowing we are visually impaired.
However when I interviewed for my LVB Show Reina Brown, a talented totally blind American woman who works from home and makes a living that way I learned the great opportunities the Internet offers to the blind in the job area.

You can listen to the whole interview I did with Reina just by clicking the link below:
