Jack Chen - Blind Google Lawyer

Being a lawyer isn't easy, even without a disability. Jack Chen has managed to succeed in a tough career—one built around the written word—without being able to see anything. Jack is a totally blind in-house lawyer for Google, and though he doesn't fight crime ala the blind lawyer in Marvel's Daredevil, he does have a superpower. In this Blomberg Law video about Jack's workday, he demonstrates how he reads documents--by using a text-to-speech program that is set so fast no normal human could understand. I was reading the words on the screen and I still couldn't understand the spoken words. Check out how Jack does this, manages a New York City commute, and meets other daily challenges in this super interesting video.
