Pakflatt announces that it has successfully completed the testing phase of its new global solution for blind and partially sighted voters. The McGonagle¨ Reader will now be available for political elections worldwide and will enable blind and partially sighted voters to mark a ballot paper independently, in secret and with confidence.
In the evidence we have gathered from blind people, we were struck, quite literally, by how much in the dark a blind person feels when they present at a polling station. As a result of this learning, we have striven to create a mental picture of the ballot paper for the blind voter.
