For Those Who Are Visually Impaired/Blind

Do…

  • Stand in good light for partially sighted people.

  • Show a blind person to a seat & introduce them to neighbours.

  • Offer visually impaired people large print/braille literature and signs.

  • Make sure that the floor/ground is as smooth as possible and there are no obstacles in the way.

  • Ensure that any steps or stairs have been marked with high-vis paint or tape so they can be clearly seen.

 

Don’t... 

  • Push a visually impaired person – let them take your arm.

  • Rely on people being able to read to know information.

  • Post pictures without image descriptions.

  • Link to pages on the website by saying “click here” - instead make the hyperlink the name of the page.
