The comment of your sighted friend is such that I would probably end that
friendship were it made to me!  Just reading this makes me furious!  How
dare your friend imagine that, simply because she can see and she failed
this test, that you as a competent blind person would fail it too, e.g., if
a sighted person can't do it, how could someone who is blind accomplish the
task?  How dare a blind person do better than her on such a test?  In fact,
you may have better computer skills, be more prepared, be more intelligent,
enter data faster, have a better telephone manner--any or all of the
above--and therefore be better able to pass this test.  Why not try it and
see how you actually do?

Also, I might have missed something on this thread--why do you need to work
or attend school only from home?

Also, for what it's worth, I do career counseling (as well as therapy)
primarily with nondisabled people, and I am often saying to them that a
college degree is now what a high school dipplomma used to be--an entry
ticket to nearly all jobs.  It is nearly impossible for anyone, blind or
sighted, to get most jobs without a degree.

Hi, uh, thanks, didn't think about that, but uh, no, that's not compatible 
with my biblical persuasion/denominational beliefs, but I can't deny that it

is a job, but how ligit?  I don't know if anybody is doing 911 dispatching 
from home or on site using jaws for that matter, but that is what I'd like 
to find out as a sighted friend told me I couldn't do 911 as she failed the 
test and she can see, and I know of another person who does this but not 
sure if she uses jaws or what?  I don't know how to get in touch with her. 
Thanks anyway.  Have a blessed day.
