Large print

SoundTalking are specialists in providing accessible large print. The high standard of advice, origination and production that SoundTalking can offer enables organisations to communicate effectively with the partially sighted.

In the UK alone there are over 1.5 million people who cannot read standard print. Of these, 75% can access large print. Making marketing literature and company information available in alternative formats such as large print enables companies to reach and help a far greater number of potential customers.

Accessible large print

SoundTalking offers accessible large print format featuring:

  • 18pt-36pt Arial typeface – Arial is considered the most accessible, widely available typeface. The use of 18pt Arial typeface ensures that the text is available to a high percentage of people with visual impairment whilst keeping documents to a manageable size.
  • 120gsm ivory paper – this heavy-weight paper means that double-sided documents are produced without ‘show-through’ affecting their accessibility. The colour of the paper reduces glare whilst maintaining a good contrast.
  • Black/monochrome throughout – Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB) guidelines advise that removing colour illustrations increases the accessibility of a document for a wide range of people.
  • Double sided, wire comb binding – ensuring a professionally finished document.

SoundTalking’s experience and expertise ensures delivery of your large print requirements on time and within budget.
