The Seventh Annual U.S. Disability Matters Awards Banquet and Conference recognizes Sprint as the only winner in the 2013 Disability Matters Marketplace category for excellence in marketing products and services that meet the needs of the disability community. This recognition stems from the company's innovative Sprint Relay ID pack and four accessibility-themed Sprint ID packs, which were developed in partnership with Apps4Android and the U.S. Department of Education. For more information, visit our newsroom.
"Wireless accessibility solutions like Sprint ID packs represent technology at its best and innovation that matters. With the Sprint Relay ID pack, Sprint became the first carrier to develop multiple applications in a single package to meet the needs of the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities. With the Sprint Accessibility ID packs that followed, we improved the ability for people with visual and cognitive challenges to communicate and access information. We are proud to receive the 2013 Disability Matters Marketplace Award recognizing Sprint's commitment to people with disabilities." - Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO, March 2013.
