Welcome to The Blind Edge
Your Low Vision and Blind Resource for Online Accessibility Software Training.
Our focus is the training of men and women that have lost some or all of their vision and have served in the United States Military. The service and sacrifice these men and women have unselfishly given to our great nation demands our utmost respect. The discipline and honor they have shown to their families, our country and the world is why The Blind Edge is devoted to giving each veteran back the EDGE they rightfully deserve.
