No one should feel excluded from our digital world due to a disability. That includes the 23.7 million adults in the U.S. who are visually impaired1.
Verizon’s mission is to bring people together through technology. So we’re proud to promote Blindness Awareness Month as we work toward greater accessibility today and every day.
- We have best-in-class products and services available to assist customers with impairments, visual or otherwise.
- We offer career opportunities for those with disabilities in a diverse, inclusive and empowering environment.
- And we’ve partnered with organizations that support and advocate for the visually impaired.
Whether you’re a customer, job seeker or anyone else interested in Verizon’s efforts at accessibility, please take a look at the information and resources below.

Verizon recently hosted a youth advocacy workshop with DeafBlind Citizens in Action (DBCA) to discuss how technology can help deafblind young people communicate with the world. It’s one example of how we’re working together with our partners to promote fuller accessibility.
