[resolved] Blind and Vision Impaired Users (4 posts)

    Hi All, so we have a low vision option for the blind on our site, however I wanted to ask if there is something more for Blind users out there? We received another request from someone who would like the site to be Blind Accessible? This means something more than just larger text I assume and something that can be read by screen readers?

    Can someone advise or point me in the right direction! Any help would be much appreciated!

    Correct. Or screen magnifiers. Or braille readers.

    Thank you Esmi! I was surprised to not easily find more out there!

    There are tons of resources out there. The first three sites should point you to a lot more. I'd suggest you widen your search to include "web accessibility" rather than just focusing on visually-impaired users. Apart from giving you a lot more in he way of guides & resources, it should stop you from skewing designs towards any one single user group - thereby causing major problems for others.
