Accessibility on preventblindness.org

Prevent Blindness makes available the Accessibe Website Accessibility Tool that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows the organization to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).

Enabling the Accessibility Menu

The Living Well with Low Vision accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility tool icon that appears on the top right-hand corner of every Living Well with Low Vision page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.

Disclaimer

Prevent Blindness continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.

Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on preventblindness.org fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
