The BITS Organization


Blind Information Technology specialist is a not-for-profit organization which fosters the career development of blind computer professionals; promotes the use of computer technology by blind persons to improve the quality of their personal and professional lives; and advocates for improved information access for all visually impaired people.

BITS holds a chat session on Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 PM Eastern Time, for anyone who would like to join us. These chat sessions are informal opportunities to get together and talk about whatever members and friends want to talk about.
