Partnering with key corporations is one way AFB is moving the needle on disability inclusion. That is why the appointment of Matthew Janusauskas, AFB’s chief technology officer, to Verizon’s Disability Advisory Board is such a key step forward.
The external board convenes trusted leaders from disability organizations “that will ensure accessibility is a lens we bring to all of our initiatives,” Verizon says. “The Disability Advisory Board will partner with senior leaders to make recommendations that will inform and support Verizon’s accessibility journey.”
Another partnership, this time with the Teubert Foundation, has enabled AFB to consistently provide readers who are blind or visually impaired with objective, user-friendly product evaluations, smart and informed commentary, and cutting-edge news and trends concerning technology and visual impairment in AccessWorld®: Technology and People Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired.
You may have noticed that at the end of each AccessWorld article, we always thank the Teubert Foundation for their support. The Teubert Foundation’s ongoing funding has allowed AFB to make AccessWorld free to read, supporting a monthly publication that is edited and reported by experts who are blind or have low vision.
“We are so grateful for their ongoing support of accessible technology and digital inclusion,” says Aaron Preece, AccessWorld editor in chief.
