Plugin for visually impaired

Does anyone know if there is a plugin for the visually impaired that allows you to zoom, change the font size, contrast and color variation, or voice synthesis reading (infovox, ivox,...)? Because I read on "Idee Culture" ( that "plugin activation for audio comments and screen reader is available" someone knows the name of the plugin and knows where I can find it and where to put it in the directory? Thank you in advance


  • Hi Hélène,

    With the entire phrase in french it's to be heard as plugins for the browser : "CollectiveAccess est une application full-web et présente les possibilités offertes par le navigateur internet : zoom, taille de la police, variation du contraste et des couleurs, et pour certains [navigateurs web] l'activation de plugins pour les commentaires audio et lecteur d'écran.".

    There is no such plugin for CA, but let's have a synthesis of what's available for disabled users, in or out of CA :

    I've been working in the past 10 years with library collections inside visually or hearing impaired organizations (INJS = french national institute for hearing impaired people, GIAA = parisian intellectual association for blind and amblyop people, etc.)

    If it is about WCAG accessibility scores, that is much more a go-to list depending on WCAG testers.

    What are your targets for visually impaired browse experience ?
    I will be happy to share here some direct experience feedbacks.
