Horizons for the Blind is proud to announce Directions For Me; a website featuring preparation directions, nutrition facts, warnings, ingredients and other important information in an easy to use and accessible format.

The database contains over 300,000 products in three categories - Food, Health & Beauty, and Other. Each of these categories has sub-listings that organize products like aisles in a grocery store.

You can also go to the search bar and type in the name of the product you are looking for.

Directions For Me was designed to be completely accessible with screen readers and magnifiers as well as web-enabled note takers and cell phones. Unlike manufacturer's websites, we present this information in a simple and consistent format and eliminate features that hinder accessibility.

With Directions for Me, there's no more guessing on what you are putting into your body, no more gambling on cooking times and best of all, no more waiting for sighted assistance!
