The Advocacy Committee of Future In Sight, in recent years, has been aware of New Hampshire companies, organizations and individuals who have made their facilities, programs and information accessible for persons who are blind or visually impaired. Blindness is a low incidence disability that requires a unique and specific approach to accessibility. This might include; contrast lines on stairways, descriptive video, Braille and large print brochures, audio mobile tours and tactile and embossed materials. The Organization wants to acknowledge these efforts through our annual Access Award.
