For the past twelve years Outlook Nebraska has been putting blind and visually impaired people to work.
Outlook Nebraska spokesman John Wick says more employment opportunities are now available. They have updated equipment that is specially designed for blind and visually impaired individuals so they can handle problems without assistance.
Outlook Nebraska converts large rolls of tissue into smaller rolls of tissue and towels that is sold to government agencies all over the U-S. Wicks say this software tells blind workers if there is a problem so they can correct it. In the past that job had been performed by sighted people. Outlook Nebraska currently has 62 employees of which 43 are blind or visually impaired.
The non-profit group is located at 72nd and F Streets in Omaha and a public open house will be held from 2 until 6 Friday afternoon.
