Ageing

Country of origin: USA

The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), The Senior Site, designed to help older Americans with age-related eye problems such as macular degeneration and cataracts live independently and productively.

The site includes information and practical solutions to help seniors with eye conditions adjust to changes in their eyesight. It connects seniors and their family members with support groups, professional services, and other local resources, and, like the rest of the AFB site, features adjustable text, colour and contrast for those with low vision. The website meets Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, enabling blind and low-vision users to navigate it using voice browser technology.
