Assistive technology is vital in helping blind and partially sighted people access digital services. However, we know apps and websites are still not as accessible as they should be. We are working with developers and digital service providers to ensure accessibility of their products. We are also reaching out to employers to raise awareness of how assistive technology can help blind and partially sighted people in the workplace.

The Merseyside Sight Loss Council teamed up with the Apple store in Liverpool to run accessibility workshops to help blind and partially sighted people use Apple devices.
Reviewing GP websites accessibility
The Bristol Sight Loss Council have been providing GP practice websites with feedback to help them improve their accessibility.
If you want to make your website more accessible, please get in touch.
