Computers for the Blind (CFTB) is a volunteer organization devoted to providing computers to persons who are blind or visually impaired. It is our hope that each person who is visually impaired may experience the information age in a positive and productive manner. We believe technology opens new worlds and creates opportunity for greater personal freedom.
Computers for the Blind has been selected to receive the American Foundation for the Blindís 2017 Access Award.
By refurbishing donated computers and making them available to people who are blind or visually impaired at little or no cost, your organization has significantly bettered the lives of hundreds of individuals. We would like to honor Computers for the Blind for your outstanding work and for serving as an example of what can be done to provide access for people in many regions throughout the country.
Each year, AFBís Access Awards honor individuals, corporations, and organizations that eliminate or substantially reduce inequities faced by people who are blind or visually impaired. AFB is pleased to offer our 2017 Access Award to Computers for the Blind, and to have your organization join a prestigious list of past winners, including Google, Apple, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Major League Baseball, and CBS Television Network.
