Top of a page from the July 1907 issue of the Outlook for the Blind.
The page titled “Outlook for the Blind July 1907” begins with a letter to “our readers” about the need for this new magazine and how to share its existence with others who may be interested.


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.
