Standards

UKAAF’s Clear and Large Print subject group oversees standards and addresses any issues relating to this format. In volume terms, clear and large print are probably the most commonly requested hard copy format in the UK.

Unlike some other subject areas, particularly braille, this subject area generally lacks any internationally recognised standards. It is therefore important, given the formats popularity, to try to ensure that the needs of vision impaired users are properly understood and addressed so that poor quality solutions such as enlarging originals on photocopiers are not used.

In addition to maintaining its clear and large print standards UKAAF therefore attempts to publicise and encourage their use.
