Severe visual impairment


If you have a serious visual impairment and you cannot see the information shown on the screen, you may come across the following barriers on web pages if they have not been implemented with accessibility criteria:

  • Images, complex graphics, graphic applications, videos and other visual elements without text alternatives to the visual information (generally text alternative) and that are not accessible on the screen reader you are using.
  • Disorientation due to a lack of section headings or correct semantic structure and changes of context with no prior warning, among other reasons.
  • Impossibility of interacting appropriately with the web pages from the keyboard.
  • Lack of effective labelling on forms.

There are operating systems with a screen reader incorporated. If this is not the case, you can get one of the screen readers available on the market.
