"Too often, swift advances in technology bring the rewards of convenience and entertainment to an eager world while inadvertently leaving those who are visually impaired behind," Augusto said. "Each of this year’s Access Award winners displayed a real commitment to making sure their products and services are equally accessible to everyone. And with the growing number of people with vision loss, focusing on accessibility is not only the right thing to do, it’s also a savvy business decision."

"With keen eyes for innovation and admirable awareness of the needs of an important constituency, this year’s Access Award winners have created precedents that competitors in their respective industries should emulate," said Augusto. "Their ingenuity reminds us of what’s possible."
