NEW: Introducing 13 Letters: The Accessibility Podcast

Accessibility is, ironically, not the most “accessible” concept. An intricate mix of best practices, regulations and creative approaches, accessibility really just means making things work for everybody. On this new podcast from Be My Eyes, Will Butler and Cordelia McGee-Tubb interview some of the world’s leading experts on accessibility to talk about how the field has evolved, and how esoteric things like WCAG, universal design and usability tests affect the lives of billions of people in big ways.

Blind to Billionaire

Matt, who lost his sight to retinitis pigmentosa, made his YouTube channel, Blind to Billionaire, to show that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. On his channel he gives small glimpses into different aspects of life with a vision impairment. As a fixture on his channel, Matt’s sighted wife, Corey, also gives great inputs on life with a blind partner.

What People are Saying

“I went home and downloaded Be My Eyes, and from that moment on that one piece of the puzzle I had been missing for all those years has now been found.”

– David, Blind user from USA.

“It feels like giving back, even when you’re on a busy schedule and you have a full-time job, it’s that simple way of being able to do something to help someone, and you get to meet some fascinating people. I’ve had some really interesting conversations with people, and I’ve had a lot of people make me laugh, cheer me up, make my day.”

– Emma, Volunteer from Ireland.
