Sometimes advocacy shouts. Sometimes it whispers.
The United States Access Board often does its work quietly. They make sure that rules and standards include the greatest number of people possible, regardless of mobility, hearing status, or visual acuity. The Access Board also offers training, and they review complaints from the public (that means you!) when a lack of access is found in a federally funded facility.
Thank you, Karen Braitmayer and the Access Board, for being a quiet force in the drive toward hearing accessibility.
