Welcome to Oncity, a city built on the pillars of Inclusion, respect and empathy!
Our citizens form a great community, and we are extremely proud of it!
Our city is accessible, which helps people with visual impairment to move around their streets and buildings freely.
People with visual impairment may have different degrees of vision. It is called “residual vision” and, depending on their abilities, they can use the Braille writing system, read printed text in large, high-contrast letters, and accessible computer tools (tiflotechnology) each adapted to the user's needs!
People who are blind can see nothing at all.
Some people who are visually impaired can distinguish between light and dark, but not the shape of objects.
Others can see or distinguish objects that are very close by, read high-contrast text that is large and clear, but it requires a lot of effort and using special aids.
There are also people who do not see everything equally. Depending on the degree of disability, pathology or visual impairment, their ability to see is impaired and the visual image they see is altered: the field of vision is incomplete, they have difficulties seeing the middle or the sides, see spots, or blurriness, etc.
