Accessibility Software Included

Our computers ship with a Home Annual license of JAWS screen reader OR ZoomText Magnifier, available through our partnership with Vispero. Details of this program are outlined below.

  • The Home Annual license is good for one (1) year, licensed through the Freedom Scientific portal with an email address you provide.
  • This gives the user full access to JAWS OR ZoomText during that first year.
  • After the first year, the software expires and the user will be required to renew the license to be able to continue using the software.
  • We require an email address to license the software for the first year. This email address is necessary for the user to access the Freedom Scientific Software Portal to manage the license after receiving the computer.
The computers we ship are donated, so here are a couple points about the hardware.
  • The condition of our computers varies. They may have some physical damage, but we ensure it doesn’t affect the performance.
  • We cannot test remaining life on laptop batteries. Although we will test that the battery will hold a charge, we cannot guarantee how long that charge will last, so we don’t provide warranty support on batteries.
  • Our inventory depends on donations so we cannot predict what we have in stock. We don’t normally allow requests for specific models.

Using a computer for the first time can be a challenging task, but we believe that the freedom that technology provides is worth the effort it might take to learn. We provide basic instructions and resources to help you get started. There are also other organizations and resources available that can provide support. Dr Langford, Computers for the Blind’s founder, said, “When you are blind, learning the computer is a lot of work. It takes real dedication. For those like me who put the effort and time into it, it is a tremendous miracle.”
