Millions of Americans have limited or low vision. In the blindness community, these individuals are unique because they are not fully sighted or totally blind. Visual acuities vary greatly, as do individual needs.
Our goal is to help our clients communicate with those customers in the most effective and efficient manner possible. Many factors influence the types of large print that can be produced. Things like information format – are you writing in paragraphs or are you sending tabular information? What are your customers’ needs – do they require 16, 22, 30, or some other font size?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does not specify any particular requirements for large print. There are some sources that suggest a minimum font size of 18, but the results from that can vary depending on font style, and whether bold typeface is selected.
Just because something meets ADA requirements, it still might not meet your customer’s needs. We like to characterize this as being legally versus practically accessible. Legally accessible may be a long way from making a customer happy, or effectively communicating your message.
We typically begin at a 22 font size, but we remain flexible to ensure meaningful communication, rather than a one size fits all strategy. Consult with us to get the best results out of your large print correspondence for you AND your customers.
Once we determine your needs, we establish processes to ensure error free transcription of your material. Our proven procedures result in nearly perfect accuracy in transcription. Simultaneously, we invoke industry standard best practices to ensure complete confidentiality of your customers, your customer information, and your company’s data.
