Visually impaired people

We recommend using the screen zoom functionality on the latest browsers, rather than adjusting the text size or using older browsers.

All Southwark libraries have a computer running Dolphin Supernova, which gives screen magnification and audio assistance for people who are visually impaired. It is free to surf the internet in Southwark's libraries. For details of your local library, go to our libraries and locations section.

If you have a visual impairment, you may find assistive technology that can help you.
