Developing, Using and Appreciating Accessibility Tech at Home and at Work

Blog

As a business professional, attorney, and brand-new uncle, I live my life to the fullest – along with my guide dog, a black lab named Linus. I have a visual impairment and utilize devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones that contain screen readers to be productive both personally and professionally. Thanks to advances in technology, I am easily able to read printed mail, identify grocery boxes and cans, communicate and play real time games with friends and family, and even participate in a fantasy football league.

What is your typical day like on the job?

It’s usually very busy. The areas I focus primarily on are renewable/alternative energy and management, oversight of AT&T’s deregulated energy portfolio and adding stability to the process.

Lots of phone calls! I’m always looking for opportunities to amplify AT&T’s key messages, including ways we can help spread our corporate social responsibility and Application-Programming Interface (API) messages.
