“When I went to RIT, it was a huge culture shock. For the first time, I learned about the Deaf community and I was exposed to ASL.”

Cat Brewer (Sign the Show)

“It’s going to take a whole community. It’s going to take everyone. It’s going to take hearing people to advocate. It’s going to take deaf people to continue advocating. Because I did not start this fight on my own. I’m just doing one little piece in a way that I know how. But there have been people long before me who have been fighting for access.”

About Faces Behind the Screen

Inspired by the popular photo-interview project Humans of New York, we launched FBTS at the beginning of 2017 to spread awareness about web accessibility. Through photos and interviews, we have been able to share many unique stories that give everyday people a face, a voice, and an opportunity to share their story and perspective.

Our aim is to simply connect the world with these stories, offer a new perspective, hopefully, shatter common stigmas and preconceived notions, and remind everyone that the world wide web, including websites, apps, and other digital interfaces, needs to be accessible for everyone – including people with disabilities.
