Inclusivity - Vote Karl

After attending an all canditates forum to discuss the voting system that will be used in the upcoming elections, the issue of website accessibility came up. Many visually impaired individuals don't end up voting just for the simple fact that navigating websites is too difficult. I am proud to announce that votekarl.ca is one of the few councillor candidate websites in Ontario that has an integrated text reader for the visually impaired!

Simply click on the wheelchair icon on the bottom right side of the website, press play, and the website will speak its contents to you. Contrast modules were also implemented. I hope that this helps some of Cobourg's visually impaired residents, and encourages them to vote!

Keyboard controls are as follows:

P - play

E - pause

S - stop

H - high contrast

J - high contrast alternate

L - minimize toolbar

Most modern browsers have built-in font resizing. On Google Chrome:

Make everything larger:
Windows and Linux: Press Ctrl and +.
Mac: Press ⌘ and +.
Chrome OS: Press Ctrl and +.

Windows and Linux: Press Ctrl and -.
