The person interested in receiving a computer has several important responsibilities. Learning to use a computer is not a simple task, so we ask commitment from the potential recipient. The benefits of using the computer are many and require patience, perseverance, and the investment of time.
To express your interest in receiving a computer:
1. Send an email: Contact CFTB
2. Call us: 214.340.6328
A representative from Computers for the Blind (CFTB) will call the potential recipient to talk about the technology requirements and learning process.
Please note that you will need to subscribe to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) for access to the Internet and Email Services. ISPs charge monthly fees for their services and the services/fees vary widely. Each person will need to independently select the ISP of choice based on personal needs and preferences.
Finally, we ask each recipient of a computer to provide a $110 processing fee to CFTB for a desktop or $130 for a laptop. Delivery of computers is estimated to be from 2 to 4 weeks following receipt of the processing fee. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship computers to international locations at this time.
