CNIB Accessibility Overview

Imagine not being able to access information.

For millions of Canadians this is the reality. Today, only 5 percent of printed materials are available in alternate formats, while less than 1percent of websites are accessible. Although we are living in the information age, the tools and technologies that provide a gateway to resources, services, education and commerce are not available to a significant number of individuals in our society.
