I would not disclose until you need some kind of accommodation. Especially in 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 interview.
