The website was built so that EVERYONE could use the site, including the visions impaired. The text throughout the website can be enlarged and the site can also be converted to high-contrast. This feature changes the background to black, and the text to white, which makes the site more readable for certain types of vision impaired users. The site was also built with reading devices in mind for the blind.
The website was developed in WordPress and features a seamless blog, an easy-to-maintain calendar and the text size/contrast converter mentioned above.
