I am totally blind student in accounting, and will be graduating in June. I have already secured a job in one of the big for public accounting firms as a business tax associate.
I have been using Excel and braille a lot. Different companies have different accounting software, and I can’t say much. But I know that it’s not that much challenging if you go for tax. I haven’t had A lot of difficulty as a student and when I did my internship in terms of accessibility, but I’m not sure about job.
I will be able to share my work experience in a few months. Please don’t give up on your profession just because of blindness. Let me know if you need further information.
Very kind regards,
Samrawit Biyazin
