Blind and Low Vision Assistive Technology Services

 

What is blind and low vision assistive technology?

Blind and low vision assistive technology encompasses a wide range of devices and tools designed to enhance accessibility and independence for individuals with vision impairments. These technologies can include screen readers, magnification software, braille displays, electronic magnifiers, and navigation aids, among others. The goal of blind and low vision assistive technology is to bridge the gap between individuals with visual impairments and the world around them, facilitating tasks such as reading, navigating, and communicating.

Anyone with a vision impairment, ranging from mild to severe, can benefit from blind and low vision assistive technology.
