Re: technology for the blind jobs
This is an AT training program at the California Community College system (100+ campuses), but it is only for INTERNAL training of existing employees:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Looking at the various pages of the above web site will give you an idea of what working in AT in a college setting consists of.
If you are already studying computer science or similar, you might be able to get involved by interning/volunteering in a computer lab for disabled students, if there is such a thing at your college.
There are far more counseling and administrative jobs in the education-disability field than technical jobs as far as I can tell.
Many of the people I know in AT and education started as counselors or special education teachers, and then first developed expertise in AT as a personal interest, which they then used to get "tech" jobs in which they received additional specialized training paid for by the employer.
In some instances, a sighted tech first learned AT because they know someone that is blind or otherwise disabled.
