design for the visually impaired
Posted by katebate83 on 8/26/2005 at 8:28 AM
my name is kate greenstock. I am a sighted graphic design student and am writing my dissertation on design for the visually impaired. I chose the topic as I am really interested in using my design skills in later life to help people, and I think communication to the visually impaired is a really important graphic design problem. I would be really interested to hear from a partially sighted person about their experiences of signage and other design issues that are either helpful to them, or examples where they feel design is in need of improvement. Thanks very much

I hope those that use text-to-speech readers find the design of my online prayer site for the blind to be designed well.
