UserWay assists users that have varying degrees of visual impairment by enhancing their browsing experience to best meet their needs and physical limitations. Userway improves the Town of Hempstead Official Website's support for keyboard-only navigation, as well as enabling users to independently increase the contrast of contents on your site, increasing the font size, switching to a more readable font face, using a larger cursor, highlighting links, desaturating content (removing color from text and images), and more, based on their personal disability and preference.
