Adults with blindness or visual impairments (N=85) and nondisabled adults (N=78) completed the Employment Access Questionnaire. Analysis found that people with and without visual impairments had similar attitudes toward the importance of training, career guidance, work expectations, and assistance, but the visually impaired group were significantly less satisfied with their training and career guidance.
