Low vision and web use

We are please to share a new infographic on low vision. With this
content, we aim to raise awareness of low vision and its impacts. We have
included details on the size and growth of the low vision population, the
causes and types of low vision, and the impact of vision loss on web use.

Through education, we hope to dispel some of the common misconceptions
about low vision, including:

   - All vision issues are correctable
   - Anyone with non-correctable vision loss is blind
   - All vision loss is the same
   - Rates of vision loss are declining
   - People with similar conditions have similar needs

for an accurate picture of low vision and its impacts. As always, we
encourage you to share this content to help improve understanding of this
important topic.
