if I only lived in Vermont. heh.
am nearly completely blind, and have been this way my whole life, yet I have experience working in MS-DOS languages Basic, Cobol, C, Assembly, Fortran, and Pascal
and windows programming languages Visual Basic, Turbo and Borland C, MS Studio, MS Studio.NET, Delphi, and numerous other 3rd party Assembly language compilers.
I am currently a Student at Ivy Tech Community College of Warsaw, finishing up my Associates in IT going for General Computer Studies, then afterwards, I'm going for my Bachelors at Indiana Tech, majoring in business and data communications, all thanks to the Zoomtext product. Zoomtext also allowed me to get MS Office Specialist, and A+ and Network+ Certified by Certiport.
I always thought pursuing a Career in IT now, was out of my reach, thanks to Windows XP and their lovely GUI interfaces. I never had a problem in MS-DOS or Linux, because I could always see a CLI without a problem. the command line was always on a black background with white letters, easy enough to read, but once Microsoft discontinued MS-DOS, I thought a Career in Computers, or even using one at all, was out of my reach. My first Computer was a Texas Instruments Commodore 16, then I had a Commodore 64, an Amiga, Tandy, vic-20, up to todays computers, and not once had I ever had any issues seeing the screen until Microsoft introduced Windows, I thought I was going to have to stop using computers, and did for many years, until I found Zoomtext, now I am learning Windows programming for the first time, and loving every minute of it.
like I said, if I only lived in Vermont. hehe, because if it wasn't for this Zoomtext product, I wouldn't be able to use a computer at all right now, much of less be pursuing a Career in IT. I had been using computers since Kindergarten, and I'm 37 right now, so its been just over 30 years I've been a computer nerd, and I was afraid I would never be able to use a computer again if I ever lost more vision, or went completely blind someday, but now thanks to Zoomtext, I have hope for the future, rather I have vision or not
