The Florida Division of Blind Services Celebrates National Cancer Survivors Day
(June 5, 2020)
Sunday, June 7, the Florida Division of Blind Services (DBS) joins the nation to recognize and celebrate those who have overcome their fight against cancer!
Cancer occurs when cells over produce in any given area in the body – including the eyes. Ocular cancers can sometimes lead to vision loss or blindness. DBS is proud to offer a number of impactful services and programs in support of individuals who need it. To learn more, visit our website DBS.MyFlorida.com.
The Division of Blind Services Celebrates Global Accessibility Awareness Day
(May 21, 2020)
With the push to quickly switch most things to a virtual platform due to COVID-19, the need for accessible hardware, software and digital sites has never been greater. Understanding the need for accessibility is on the rise as well, which is why we observe Global Accessibility Awareness Day the third Thursday of May.
On this day, designers, developers, and usability experts attend meetups across the world to learn more about the importance of creating technology that is accessible to everyone!
DBS’s foundation is built on creating and providing equality and accessibility for blind and visually-impaired Floridians who must navigate in a world that doesn’t always consider digital accessibility for people with disabilities. This is why the Florida Division of Blind Services partnership with Vispero has been so impactful. The services provides eligible Florida residents access to assistive technology – helping create digital equality and accessibility. With the combination of this partnership and the development of accessible systems, we can make the world more accessible.
Local DBS offices are not currently open to the public to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you are a current DBS customer, representatives are reaching out to connect you with available services. Please contact us at (800) 342-1828 for any additional needs. Stay Safe and Healthy!
