Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB)

Royal National Institute of the Blind isn’t just for those who cannot see at all. The website also provides excellent suggestions and resources for people with limited vision. The home page is filled with resources, and the remainder of the site is divided into 5 main secitons, tabbed at the top menu:

Good Design: This area discusses providing products, websites, and services with accessibility in mind. Here’s a quote: “Accessibility does not only affect people with disabilities. It has enormous benefits and rewards for everyone.”

About Us: “We are UK’s leading charity offering information, support and advice to over two million people with sight problems.”

Eye Info: Includes “FAQ,” “Eye conditions,” “See for yourself (practical advice),” “Looking after your eyes,” and more.

Support us: This is the area for anyone who wishes to donate.

Daily Life This is my favorite area. It includes such things as “First steps” and “Doing ordinary things.” There’s a list of Recource Centres for those in the UK. You’ll find links to help develop your career or retain the job you already have.

The website is naturally written with a slant toward a UK population as far as resources and regulations. But it’s also packed with tips for anyone who is experiencing vision difficulty.
