Free Software Program for Individuals with Low Vision

Lighthouse International is now offering free online software for individuals with low vision. LowBrowse, an add-on to Mozilla’s Firefox browser, enables people with moderate or severe low vision to view web pages as the original web author intended, as well as read the text on those pages in a format that is tailored to their own visual needs.
Users can also customize font, text size, color contrast and letter spacing, as well as magnify images or have the text read aloud to them.

To download LowBrowse, visit: http://lowbrowse.lighthouse.org/apache2-default/
