Sometimes, these things you may not qualify for could actually work out.
Many of the skills you mentioned are learnable skills. Although they may be
difficult to learn, they are skills a job coach or someone such as this
could work with you. When I was job hunting, I got to the point where I
would apply for anything I thought I could do because if nothing else, I may
get an interview and make another professional contact building my network.

Subject: [nfbwatlk] Job hunting question
Hi all, okay, my husband and I are having a slight difference of opinion
about something, and I thought I'd ask you all. There are some jobs out
there that I absolutely know I don't qualify for, because there are things
that I have not done before, or know that I would have a difficult, if not
impossible time doing.
He says that I should apply anyway. I say why would I do that knowing that
I don't meet the qualifications they are asking for.
For instance, one job I just looked at today has lots of things that I can
do: answer phone, direct calls, word processing, record meeting minutes and
send them out to appropriate people, order office supplies. But here are
the things I'm not so sure
about: scan documents, maintain electronic AND hardcopy files, (the hard
copy ones are the ones I question) distribute mail, create calendars, and
the biggy, put text into graphics; I'm assuming that they have the graphic
and they want text imbedded in the graphic. They also want someone who can
operate a fax and a copier, (which I have not done but assume that if I had
a way of knowing whether the page was upside down or right-side up, I
could do). Apply or not to apply, that is the question. Lol.
