“I get to see the benefits of accessibility and when it’s done well. I get to see every day the effect that accessibility has on somebody’s life if you give them the tools they need. I can see them flourish, and be able to develop newer technologies to fit into the gaps in our society.”

Alanna Kilroy

“It was a pretty unique experience for me at school. I knew I was different. I had to carry around a speaker box because my teacher used a microphone to speak with me.”

Gerard Boucher

“Haverhill’s Gerard Boucher joined the US Marine Corp to avoid getting drafted by the US Army. On the wall of his home sits a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts, so he certainly picked an unusual way to avoid the draft.”

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.
