[Jobs] Virtual Jobs

Since losing my eyesight when I was thirty-one years old during 2001, I have
held customer service positions working in mortgage banking customer service
and then I worked in the credit card banking business with Capital One.  I
most recently worked a position setting up customer sales appointments for
the auto dealership sales people for a vehicle look and test drive.  I am
starting a new auto sales appointment setting position next week.  I enjoy
these sorts of positions for many reasons, but I really enjoy being a good
J.A.W.S. user while me never having the need to tell a customer that I am
blind.  I am not embarrassed of being blind, I am proud to be good at being
blind.  But, me being blind never needs to come up during my conversation
with customers or potential customers.  Please let me know if you have any
questions for me and I will be happy to give you my two cents worth.

Good Afternoon,

Does anybody have any experience with online (or virtual) job? This
allows an individual to complete all of his or her work only via
internet or phone.  I think this is less bias way of getting hired
(employers don't know you are blind as long as you get the job done on
time) and probably gives higher chance of working for blind people.  I
was able to pull off a list of these kinds of jobs from google but I
want to find ones that are more doable by a blind person (such as
barriers due to accessibility, technology, so forth) and generate
substantial income (definitely not something like transcribing job
which only pays like $.05 per hour) at the same time.  Any suggestions
or recommendations?
