Myths About Low Vision

Whenever you think about low vision you must remember that you are not addressing one disability; you are addressing a large cluster of disabilities. Something that works for one population, has a good chance of impeding another population. Regarding print, visual readers need individualized accommodation. This is best exemplified by HTML with CSS that has fully separated information and structure from presentation. Using the unfettered power of CSS most people in VR/LV can have their reading disability substantially if not completely removed. Print disabilities for visual readers with low vision are avoidable today. They only persist because publishers and media vendors persist in using media that prevent individualized accommodation.
