I am currently receiving web development from Blind Access Training. My instructor is a brilliant young man by the name of Juan Gonzalez. Mr. Gonzalez
is some 34 years my junior, but those years of separation is where the difference stops. Mr. Gonzalez is knowledgeable, patient and thorough, and I, at
57, am learning a lot. I am extremely pleased with the instruction. Moreover, the company was able to accommodate me with regard to the cost of the instruction,
and I have even received some additional service pertinent to a new screenreader I have recently installed. Suffice it to say, I am thrilled with Blind
Access Training; and I would recommend its services to any blind person who is seeking to expand his or her wealth of technology-based knowledge.
