Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Welcome to The Helen™ Project!


The Helen™ Project is a 21st century extension of Helen Keller's impact on the rights and opportunities of people with disabilities. As part of our responsibility to fulfill her legacy, we wonder "What would Helen do?" if she were confronted with the opportunities and obstacles that the Internet presents to people who, because of their disability, do not have full access to the Internet due to accessibility limitations that exist on many web sites. If you are among the millions of individuals facing that reality, we invite you to help us answer that question and become part of The Helen™ Project. To be part of The Helen™ Project, all you need to do is register and download the accessible Helen™ Toolbar Application.

In Helen Keller's own words: "Alone we can do so little ... together we can do so much."

Completely Inaccessible as rated by: Marc
Marc wanted to: Find Information
Marc says: Wow, zero stars. 100% inaccessible flash. Every single button is unlabeled and when I activate the buttons, my screen reader detects nothing. "You'll be sorry" if you try to visit this web site.
