Accessibility Program
 
 
Baltimore, Maryland (October 4, 2016): The National Federation of the Blind
(NFB) announced today that Target Corporation is the first company to
participate
<https://corporate.target.com/article/2016/09/accessibility-team?>  in the
NFB's new Strategic Nonvisual Accessibility Partnership
<https://nfb.org/national-federation-blind-strategic-nonvisual-access-partne
r-certification>  (SNAP) initiative. The goal of the SNAP program is to
increase the accessibility of technology by developing productive ongoing
partnerships with organizations in an effort to assist them with infusing
accessibility into their culture.
 
Mark A. Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind, said:
"Target has already made tremendous strides in making its website and
content accessible and now operates one of the most accessible retail
websites on the internet. We are pleased that our two organizations are
taking our relationship to the next level to enhance the shopping experience
of blind Target customers and to demonstrate accessibility best practices
that other companies and organizations can emulate."

About the National Federation of the Blind 
 
The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
