Why Large Print?

Hundreds of thousands of books are published every year, yet finding large print versions can be challenging for those who need them. The World Health Organization published that 2.2 billion people have near or distance visual impairment. Those with learning difficulties can find large print content easier to digest and interpret. There are also many who simply prefer large print to standard text, especially those who spend much of their day using a digital screen.

What Are the Guidelines for Publishing in Large Print?

In conjunction with the UK Accessible Formats Association (UKAAF) we have developed guidance for best practice when setting up Large Print editions, including recommended font styles and sizes. We also worked with the Royal National Institute of the Blind to ensure our paper stock is of sufficient quality for readers of large print.

Whilst there are no specific guidelines for the metadata of large print editions, we have worked with UKAAF, RNIB and the Daisy Consortium to put together guidance for our publishers.
