The Access Awards honor individuals, corporations and organizations that eliminate, or substantially reduce, inequities faced by people who are blind or visually impaired. These recipients have been chosen for their donations, creation of accessible technology related alternatives, accessibility training, and charity services for visually impaired youths.
CEO of the American Foundation for the Blind, Carl R. Augusto, has openly voiced his great affection for these recipients stating, “The 2012 Access Award recipients have directly impacted the lives of people with vision loss, having increased access to entertainment, technology, transportation and physical fitness… We are honored to publicly recognize these individuals and organizations”. The 2012 Access Awards will be presented to the recipients on May 4, 2012 at the American Federation for the Blind Leadership Conference in St. Pete Beach, Florida.
