John Carroll

“Back in 2006, I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. It just suddenly came upon me. I got up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and the world flipped upside down… For about 10 years, I would have flare-ups and attacks every now and then where I just felt off-balance or a bad attack where I would lose it from nausea. In 2017, I woke up one morning and was totally deaf on the right side.”

“Trysta was born profoundly deaf in September 2005. When she was about 13 months, she had her first side of cochlear implants done. About six months later, she had her other side done. They took wonderfully.”

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.
