ISGS Blog Adds Accessibility Features


You may have noticed a new icon in the sidebar here at the ISGS blog. It is a link to the JISC TechDis Toolbar which adds accessibility features for those with different types of vision issues.

The JISC TechDis ToolBar is provided by the University of Southampton, School of Electronics and Science and allows viewers of a website to zoom the text in and out, change the page style such as white text on black background, and even convert text to audio. I hope that those readers who have vision issues will find it useful and that it makes the GeneaBloggers website more accessible to them.

To learn how you can add this easy-to-install and easy-to-use feature at your own blog or website, please see this post at GeneaBloggers.
