“And I feel like since I’ve started using the white cane, I feel like I’ve had to give up even more things because I feel I have to conform to the public’s idea of what a blind person is.”

Justin Bishop

“And so I always get text messages or phone calls saying, yeah, I just threw on this movie with audio description, and I was doing laundry, I was doing work, and I didn’t have to lift my head up once. And I was like, see, so anybody can use it.”

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.
