How do you vote if you're visually impaired?

I guess its a question very few of us ever have to ask, but the reality is voting if you can't see or have difficulty seeing the ballot paper presents a series of challenges, as this article from the Irish Times points out https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/voting-when-blind-you-d-have-to-be-a-mensa-member-to-work-out-how-to-vote-1.3903469

One of the assistance's available are freephone lines which the voter can ring both in advance of voting day and while they are actually voting. These lines are specific to each constituency and list the candidates as they appear on the ballot paper.

I'm delighted to say Silvertung have just produced these recordings in both English and Irish for the main Dublin constituencies.
