Making the World More Accessible


Both within and outside the United States, there are tremendous misconceptions about accessibility in technology. This poses a major challenge for the blind and visually impaired community. How can we effectively show the world how easy it is to design with accessibility in mind?

 BIT’s Approach

Our goal is to connect people across various disciplines and industries, creating a free repository of information and content focused on accessibility. From short videos showing users how to download and install screen readers, to advanced lessons demonstrating tricks making websites more accessible, the Eyes on Accessibility program aims to provide a one-stop shop for accessible technology resources.

This program is still in its infancy, but stay tuned for updates!
