The City of Niagara Falls has taken steps to ensure that all visitors to our website will be able to get the information they need. We also offer an alternative site that is text-only along with the ability to have the text of the website read out loud to the visitor.
The alternative version of our website will appeal to such users as:
- visitors with a disability
- Mobile users (Cell phone, PDA, etc)
- Low bandwidth users (dial-up)
- ... and many more
Please visit our Text only site at text.niagarafalls.ca - the text only version of www.niagarafalls.ca.
In order to have each web page read out loud, click on the blue speaker icon () located at the top of each content section.
Feel free to view the City of Niagara Falls Accessible Customer Service Policy for additional information.
The text-only site is customizable by the visitor. At the bottom of each text-only page, you can change the font colour, background colour, text size, menu layouts and more. You can also switch back and forth between the text-only version and the graphical site by clicking on the link at the bottom of each text-only page.
Accessing the Text Only Version
The text only version of niagarafalls.ca is easily accessible from any page on the site. At the top right corner of the content area on each page, there is a link to the 'Text version'. Clicking on that link will open the same page in the text version.
AODA Complinace (Emergency & Public Safety Information)
Upon request, the City of Niagara Falls will make every effort to ensure that emergency and public safety information is made accessible to people with disabilities. In doing so, the City will work with the person requesting the information to determine how their needs can be met as soon as possible. Please note, this only applies to information that is available to the public.
