“Having a smartphone is such an important part of my life, especially because of my sight loss. My phone has become a vital tool for navigating, reading, emailing and so many other things I do on a day-to-day basis. Today’s technology has made my life so much easier.”.

-Victoria Nolan, individual with sight loss
