Saturday, September 30th, 2017 by morethan

Accessibility is the word used to describe whether a product (for example, a website, mobile site, digital TV interface orapplication) can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities – this is called usability.

On a website, accessibility depends on how a person’s disability affects the way they perceive information on a page and how they navigate within and between pages. Elements that affect accessibility include:

Visit the BBC My web my way website for everything you need to make websites and your computer easier to use.  Also on our own More Than Mobility website you can adjust the text size to help with reading.

At More Than mobility we have some useful mobility products that are designed to help the visually impaired. Below are a couple of the products that will help you to read what’s on screen.

We all know how frustrating it can be trying to read in low light and studies have shown that reading in poor light can cause eyestrain and effect your concentration.  These specifically designed high vision reading lights that use near daylight bulbs allow you to read and concentrate for longer, helping to relieve eyestrain and headaches.   Price:  £32.99
