Scripts make sure that user can download needed or missing parts automatically, and from then on - he is fully prepared…
The integration into a site is no harder, than working with any given Java Script. There are even tools available, to support you writing "action" script.
So why would you do that? To begin with - it improves quality of life for people, you have enough problems anyway. But if you want to have a more practical use - Offering these service now - where almost no one is doing that will make your site stand out - and visitors with impaired vision value that and remember. The rate of endorsement you may be able to achieve is much higher than with "ordinary" visitor.
In my example - in almost 20% of all new gigs, we are being asked to implement Agent Technology - from Zero % 18 months ago. I would say, that this is a significant increase. The community of people with impaired vision is tight nit - and if you're site is a good source for information, products etc., you can be sure, that once word is out - it won't hurt your traffic.
Bottom Line is, odds are, that, if you're doing it right, promote this Site ability and update your content once in a while, you will attract a new clientele, and even if worst thing happens, and you don't make any improvement in your visitor frequency - you still have benefit of being able to lean back and say - I did something good, today.
Here are some links - to get you into developing mood:

So be good, do something for life quality of citizens with impaired vision and your business and have fun doing it.
