Welcome to the July Newsletter!

Hi {{ ${$first_name} }},

This month we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Clearblue, making it possible for blind and low-vision users to call the Clearblue Careline through Specialized Help, for assistance reading the results of their pregnancy and fertility tests. We’re also happy to launch The Be My Eyes Podcast. Tune in every other Tuesday to hear stories that go beyond the Be My Eyes Community. Last but not least, you can get a look behind the scenes at the Google Disability Support team with Lisa. Enjoy the read!

NEW: Clearblue now offers support with pregnancy and fertility tests through Be My Eyes

Being in control of your own body and the information about it is an important issue for most people, but it’s something that has been out of reach for many blind and low-vision women and couples when taking a pregnancy or fertility test. Be My Eyes and Clearblue are joining forces to give them back control.

What People are Saying

“Knowing that I could just grab my phone and make a call, and have these people help me do something that I just really wanted to do was one of the most exciting and freeing experiences that I’ve had with accessibility in general.”

– Tatum, low-vision user from USA

“I’m using the Be My Eyes app, and it’s helping me a lot to do many daily tasks that I had difficulties with before, such as identifying labels, finding products at the supermarket and other stores and checking the change. Be My Eyes gives me more self-confidence.”

– Leonardo, blind user from Brazil

“The call that I got most recently was helping a woman pick out a suit for a church event. I really love style, so it was cool to make that little connection with her.”

– Anna, volunteer from USA
