At CDC Sunnyvale ops back in the 1970s, we had a blind programmer 
working.  His job output came as punched cards and he had no problem 
reading them by feel.  I remember him and his beautiful guide dog.

In the same sort of spirit, I recall that one of the secretaries used a 
monitor-cum-camera affair to enlarge her work documents so that she 
could read them.

It's sad that early corporate efforts to accommodate all people, no 
matter the impairment, aren't better documented.
