We are constantly working to make our site accessible to everyone we can. This site contains tags for use with screen readers. It was tested with NVDA, but there are many others. A link to NV Access for NVDA is provided as well as to the American Foundation for the Blind which lists many products to assist anyone with a visual disability. The Commission on Homelessness and Housing for Volusia & Flagler Counties does not endorse or warrant any particular products, rather these links are provided for convenience.
If you run into any issues please contact us so that we may be able to address the issues.
