Experience the Web from a New Perspective

"In order to develop perspective on the experience of persons with disabilities using the internet, WebAIM (Web Accessibility in Mind) has created four simulations which include screen reader simulation, low-vision simulation, dyslexia simulation, and distractability simulation. These tools will help you to understand issues confronting persons with a variety of disabilities on the web, and guide you toward accessible design practices."

A very interesting website offering users an example of what various vision impaired users experience. Simulations of different types of software are used to provide the user what a vision impaired user experiences.
