As of April 22, American Council of the Blind was added to the Be My Eyes platform as a “Specialized Help” provider. This means that anyone in the US who needs to communicate with an ACB expert can now initiate a video call directly through the Be My Eyes app and have their call routed simultaneously to the ACB team.

On Thursday, American Foundation of the Blind hosted a webinar titled “Inclusive Remote Work Environments”, teaching how to create and maintain accessible online work environments. An audio-described, transcribed and captioned version will be available shortly here. Also available, “Remote Instruction and Services for Blind and Low Vision Participants”.
