IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED

Three important resources and tools for the blind or visually impaired population:

  • The Facebook group “Iphone and Ipad apps for the Blind and Visually Impaired” – this is a tremendous group that allows people to share their successes, failures, and advice.
  • www.applevis.com – this is another incredibly resource with blogs, advice and search engines on subjects affecting the blind or visually impaired.
  • “Reader View Available” – look for this message to pop up in the website address bar of any website you are viewing.  If available, click on the horizontal vertical lines in the far left corner of the web address bar and this will remove the advertising on the website and increase the font size of written words.
