Accessibility.net has grown to become a service only company which does not sell products.  Founded by Patrick J. Fischer in Martin City, Missouri in 1997 as F1-Key, LLC which held a State Rehab Engineering contract.  The company was an authorized distributor VAR - Value Added Reseller for the leading manufacturers of technology which help persons who are blind and visually impaired from 1995 to 2014. 

In 1999 the company moved its office to Omaha, Nebraska and working out of an apartment grew sales in the states of Nebraska and Iowa, while holding a Rehab Engineering contract in Missouri.  As business grew in Nebraska, that Rehab Engineering contract was not renewed.

In 2000, BrailleCards.com was purchased with Patrick's partner Bob Varney of Lamar, Missouri.  This grew to become the Braille Mission which owned and operated 12 websites dedicated to braille.  The Braille Mission closed its doors in the Spring of 2014 and split off BrailleShop.com and BrailleCards.com to separate organizations..
