Large Print

Large-print materials have a type size that is easier to read for individuals with low vision.  Typically, materials for adult readers are in a 10-12 pt. type font.  Large print materials are generally considered to be materials that are 16 -18 pt. type and higher.  Also, some font types are considered easier to read. Examples include Arial, Verdana, and Calibri.  Large print can be in hard copy or electronic form.
