All material that is printed for reading by visitors (e.g., guides, programmes, pamphlets and menus, etc.), should also be available, in accessible formats, to visually impaired people. This also includes the need to ensure that, where such information is supplied by third parties, it should also be available in accessible formats.
These formats should include the following:
- large print (16pt)
- braille: Grade 1 braille is recommended because it is more likely to be understood by a wider variety of readers, including braille beginners those who do not have English as their first language.
- accessible Microsoft Word versions of all guides and programmes, etc., should be available online and, on request, by email. For more information on accessible Word versions of documents see our Accessible Communications Policy, Section 3. Electronic Documents
