Guidance Documents

UKAAF has developed a number of  minimum standards documents that will be particularly useful for service providers and transcribers of accessible formats.

The UKAAF minimum standards documents are free to download in doc, docx PDF formats and are listed on the menu under the format that they relate to. To obtain an electronic version, simply select the UKAAF  document you wish to access and you will then be taken to the UKAAF download page where you can download it.

Hardcopy versions of UKAAF’s documents in print, large print, synthetic audio and braille are available to purchase (14 day delivery). UKAAF members benefit from being able to purchase these at a reduced rate. To enquire about purchasing accessible format versions please contact admin@ukaaf.org.
