has been redesigned to be accessible to the widest audience possible.  It is compatible with popular screen reading software, and can be fully navigated with a keyboard.  The site also contains some additional features that can make the website easier to read.

Readability Options

Below, we offer a variety of different options in order to make our website easier to read.  By clicking on any of the links below, you can increase the contrast of the site (black background with white text), enlarge the font, or even both.

Skip to Content also features a “skip to content” link on every page, which allow users to skip right to the main content of the page.  This becomes especially useful to those with screen readers so that they can skip the lengthy navigation menus every time they view a new page.

Live captioning

Live streams will now feature live captioning to improve accessibility for people who are Deaf or hearing impaired. Viewers can turn on live captioning by selecting the “cc” icon in the bottom right corner of the live stream.

Closed captioning is generated using artificial intelligence, so there may be inaccurate spellings or interpretations of words, depending on the speaker’s speed, accent, and word pronunciation.

Watch live streams of Council-In-Committee, Council, Public Meetings, Board of Health, Committee of Adjustment, and Police Services Board Meetings on Norfolk County’s YouTube page.
