Comcast NBCUniversal is committed to making our products, services, and experiences accessible to the widest possible audiences — creating new pathways to independence and inspiration for people with disabilities. We’re continuously innovating to expand the utility of our products, from the cable industry’s first talking guide, to narrated voice descriptions of TV programs, to remotes that can be manipulated through eye-tracking devices — all of which are available today. We are also committed to making our workplaces inclusive for employees of all abilities and to building a workforce that reflects the demographics of the disability community.


  • Meet Jimmy: Technology is Enabling Him to Be More Independent

    This is Jimmy. Because of his disability he could never use a television remote. That’s why we introduced him to our new technology that lets customers operate their television using only their eyes.

  • Meet Chase: Strength, Resilience and Independence

    Chase is an amazing kid. At an early age he lost his limbs, but he’s never let that stop him getting the most out of life. We’re proud to offer products that let him be more independent.

  • Meet Bernadette: Challenges, Determination, and Inclusivity

    Bernadette has always been determined to succeed, no matter what society told her she couldn’t do. We’re proud to share her inspiring story.

  • Meet Logan: Discovery through the X1 Voice Remote
