Outlook for the Blind was originally a “Quarterly Record of the Progress and Welfare of the Blind,” first published by the Massachusetts Association for Promoting the Interests of the Blind and edited by Charles F.F. Campbell. It was later published by American Foundation for the Blind and continued as New Outlook for the Blind from 1959-1976, and the Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness (JVIB) from1976-present.
Our goal is provide resources that are accessible to all.
Selected issues of the Outlook for the Blind magazine have been digitized and been made available on the Internet Archive, which utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) and downloadable file formats, including Daisy, to provide access to users who are blind and visually impaired. We acknowledge that OCR is prone to errors, and cannot recognize graphics or handwritten text, thus creating barriers to some of these materials. It is our intention that by providing the materials as is, the resource is findable online to all. If any of Perkins Archives resources accessed online aren’t accessible in part or in whole, to a user because of a disability, we will create an accessible version upon request.
