Steve,

Thanks for sharing your experience and offer.  Did you also win this
job through phone interview only?  Are you currently working from home
using your computer and phone and internet without having to commute?
What kind of skills or experience do I have to have for this job?
Among many reasons I want this kind of job is  the issue with
relocation.  I believe there are some employers in this country who
actually want to hire blind people but I most likely have to relocate
which is kind of difficult for me to do at this point.

BTW, this is the kind of answer I'm looking to hear, your own
experience with this and not some crappy advice or lecture. No
offense.

Ryan
