Accessibility Is Our Expertise

Of the thousands of electronic products on the market today, how many are accessible to people who are blind or low vision?

The William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center is poised to answer that question through its newest initiative, the Accessible Products Hotline. This first-of-its-kind service will identify the top accessible products in various consumer categories and guide callers through their operation.
