I used to work in home health care and took care of a 90 year old man named Edward. He was blinded in WW2 when he was 18. After the war he decided to go to school and went on to become a computer science professor all while blind. He memorized the keyboard and used screen reading programs. I was amazed when I heard that, being a computer science student myself. he did it in the 40s and 50s when computers were first being made, I have no doubt that you can do the same today!

Pm me if you have any questions!
