Welcome to CareerConnect’s virtual retail/restaurant work site designed to show how to accommodate individuals who have some degree of useable vision. Although not every worker with low vision will need or want every accommodation pictured, we are trying to show you the range of tools available that might benefit such workers. You may access the content by either clicking on the links embedded in the graphic or by selecting objects listed on the accompanying list. The links will take you to written information, videos, or web sites.

One of the great advantages of video is that you can see an actual person, in this instance a CareerConnect mentor with low vision, doing his job in a retail setting. You can link here to see Bruce Hall, who works at a kiosk at the Chicago Midway Airport, using technology to perform at work.
