I'm a blind 3rd-year computer science major in college. I've been studying OOP languages like C++/Java and focussing on software engineering up until now. I'm becoming more interested in front end web development. Specifically user side web and app design.
My question is: is it even slightly possible for a blind person to work as a front end web developer? That is, are there specific day-to-day job function of a front end web developer that would be impossible for a blind person to accomplish? What about things like wire frames and mock ups? How necessary are those on the day to day? Would it be enough to simply understand what the client wants and know how to write that out in code - or do I absolutely have to 'see' the results of my code? Or is there a team culture that would lend itself to my team mates lending me their eyes to confirm that my code is producing the desired visual effect/layout - or would that be an unreasonable burden to place on my team mates?
I had vision for 22 years - so I know what things look like, understand visual layout, format, and color schemes. So I do understand what the things I would be building would look like.
