The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), the national nonprofit that expands possibilities for people with vision loss, has launched a redesign of its main website, www.afb.org. The new site offers a more interactive, engaging experience, making it easier for visitors to locate information on the topics that interest them.
Like the former AFB website, the new afb.org is fully accessible to people with vision loss. Visitors can change colors, font, and font size to increase content readability.
On the new site, visitors will find:
- A new information architecture that improves navigability via a cleaner design
- Slideshows that highlight news, events, and resources on living with vision loss
- New and enhanced ways to engage with AFB through public policy campaigns and social networking channels
- The ability to easily share content by e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter
- In-depth descriptions of more than 1,600 agencies and organizations that offer services to people with vision loss, available for free for the first time through AFB’s Directory of Services online
