Don't disclose until you have too.

if you are not in a face to face interview, iti might not come up at all.
You might have to ask for accommodations when you get the job, though.

You can use the JAN site to write a formal JAN letter.

Subject: [NABS-L] Job Interview: Seeking Advice on Disclosing my Disability

Hi everyone,

Hope you all are having a great summer. 

I applied for a part time job at my college's library and just found out
today that they want to do a phone interview. The application just consisted
of a resume, so other than the fact that my work experience includes working
at a camp for blind and visually impaired youth, I haven't yet disclosed my
disability. Since it's not an in-person interview, my blindness won't be
obvious unless it comes up during the interview. Do you have any suggestions
for how/when I should handle disclosure? Any general job interview tips
would also be appreciated, since this is really my first official job

Thank you, and happy weekend!
