Show Summary:

In this Tech Abilities podcast, I met up with Sprint Outreach Specialists Diane and Rob during the NCSAB conference. Sprint will provide Bills in Braille and large print, a discount on a plan and help BVI customers maximize the accessibility of their smart phone.

It is nice to see Sprint at and sponsoring conventions such as NFB, ACB, AFB and more, and to have Outreach Specialist like Diane and Rob available to ask those accessibility questions right at their booth. Plus, Sprint brings the Vision Store to the events offering up Bluetooth speakers and headphones that are accessible and at a very nice price.

Next time you are at a convention, stop by the Sprint booth and see what plans they can offer you.

You can find out more about Sprint and accessibility on the web at www.Sprint.com/vision
