Daniel Amezcua is a blind tech enthusiast who has been teaching assistive technology for nearly a decade. After losing his sight in 2009, he learned to navigate through the world of technology with the help of screen readers. He soon discovered that not everything was accessible for the blind or those who relied on the use of screen readers.
Soon after Daniel began teaching others to use assistive technology, he launched a YouTube channel where he does iPhone tutorials, product demonstrations, and shows how weather mobile apps are accessible with VoiceOver for the iPhone.
Daniel joined Be Accessible to further help the blind community and help make the web become more accessible one website at a time.
Check out Daniel’s video below where he describes some of the common barriers he faces on the Internet.
