Re: Low Vision Simulation

I believe VisionSim only works with camera mode; in other words, I use it
on my iPhone to take a photo and see the results of that simulated low
vision disability. However, I will keep looking for something that
operates like VisCheck ( http://www.vischeck.com/vischeck/ ) where it takes
a URL and displays the results that way.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the people to gather wood,
divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast
and endless sea.
