At the end of last year, AT&T launched the Corporate Accessibility Technology Office (CATO), a group that serves to lead the company’s efforts to meet their obligations to make products and services accessible to persons with disabilities. Their customers aren’t the only ones to benefit – they provide support systems to employees as well. AT&T recently profiled Thomas Grodecki, a representative of their Bankruptcy Team who was diagnosed with glaucoma and had been struggling at his job until he found ZoomText.
As you’ll see in the video below, Thomas uses ZoomText’s color enhancements to improve the contrast on his screen so he can be effective at his job. It’s these kind of stories that we live for – with our products, you can stay connected to the world, increase your productivity and remain employed. A visual impairment will not stand in your way when you have the right tools!
As AT&T states on their blog, “for any company seeking to be competitive today, accessibility is more than just a legal obligation; it is an economic imperative.” We wish that every company out there held that very attitude. Kudos to AT&T for making accessibility a priority, and for standing behind their slogan: “Rethink Possible”. Check out Thomas’ success story below and join us in wishing him nothing but continued success in the future:
