Blind Low Vision NZ: Information About Accessibility

This page on the New Zealand based Blind Low Vision NZ (formerly the Blind Foundation) website offers information about making printed and electronic texts accessible for low-vision and blind audiences. 


"People who are blind or have low vision want to buy products, enjoy services and be part of society – just like every other Kiwi.  You can reach them by creating documents and websites, signage and buildings that are accessible.

Accessible means that someone who’s blind or has low vision can get your information in a way they can process it.  If they’re on your website, they can read about your products and services using assistive technology. If your brochures are available by email as accessible PDFs, they can also use that computer programme to read them. If your menu is available in braille, a blind diner will be able to choose their dish of the day."
