Our Vision and Core Values

Our Vision

To provide outreach, advocacy, education and services by promoting an inclusive culture and accessible digital infrastructure to ensure equal access to employment, education, recreation, and independent living opportunities for people with disabilities.

Core Values

My Blind Spot believes that all individuals are entitled to acceptance, encouragement, and respect – as well as freedom from discrimination, labeling, and stereotyping, regardless of their challenges in life.

We believe that every person, at every age and level of ability, has the potential for growth. We believe that access to the right tools, including technologies, promotes ability and restores infinite possibilities.

"We need to make every single thing accessible to every single person with a disability."
– Stevie Wonder

A message from Albert J. Rizzi

Founder of My Blind Spot

Albert J. Rizzi's headshot

Each of us in one way or another has a blind spot in our lives. When I first came to be blind, I found I was forever running into literal and virtual walls—dead ends that blocked my assimilation into the blind community and hindered my participation in mainstream society. Without my sight, not only did the world become invisible to me, but I learned how it felt to be unseen.

So My Blind Spot was founded. My Blind Spot is a place where people of all visual abilities can come together and gain a clear view to independence, empowerment, and inclusion. It is our hope to be not just a resource, but a force that empowers individuals and society as a whole: one spot where people of all visual abilities can find answers and support.

Peace and to be continued...

Albert J. Rizzi

Select Client List


In the 21st Century, access to websites, mobile apps and software programs are critical to ensuring a fully inclusive global society.

With the proliferation of assistive technologies and the attention to digital accessibility, people of ALL abilities have greater opportunity for independence and employment than ever before. People who are blind or print disabled are able to realize their fullest potential, contribute to society and seek gainful employment equal to that of their nondisabled peers. My Blind Spot advocates for adherence to legislation aimed at eradicating ignorance and systemic discrimination unintentionally directed at the disability community. We must tap into our strengths rather than passively accept being denied access because of antiquated perceptions about our ability.

Mitigation vs. Litigation: Embracing Digital Inclusion

I just finished reading an article titled “ADA Suits Increasingly Target Websites” by Ally Marotti, with the Chicago Tribune. Ally writes about 3 different lawsuits leveled against nationally recognized retailers. For what you say? For discriminating against people with brains, financial means, and a laptop or mobile app to use when we shop, bank, work… people that, oh yeah, just happen to have a disability.
