According to the World Health Organization, there are an estimated 246 million people worldwide living with low vision. It is reasonable to expect that as the population ages, the group of older individuals who have low vision will increase and as a result, the demand for large print will rise. This increase will undoubtedly impact the way in which businesses communicate with their customers, and remain compliant with accessibility legislation.To fully address accessibility issues and communicate effectively with their low vision customers, organizations must go beyond standard design methods. Many organizations that use photocopying to enlarge regular print statements are doing themselves, their large print customers, and their brand a great disservice.

July’s format of the month is Large Print, so we caught up with our resident Large Print expert, Sue Costa and interviewed her for our “Ask the Expert” series. In this interview, Sue shares her insights on making large print documents accessible, and why photocopying simply isn’t enough.

For the past several years, T-Base has partnered with Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) by offering scholarships in order to help fund the educational pursuits of an outstanding blind, deaf-blind or partially sighted student in Canada who is continuing his or her academic education at the post-secondary level.

Last year’s scholarship winner was Michael Staffen of Regina, Saskatchewan. With the announcement of this year’s scholarship recipient looming, we caught up with Mike and asked him about accessible education, accessible technology, and what advice he could give to blind students pursuing secondary education.

This is the final installment of the 3 part series from Michael that will lead up to our announcement of this year’s scholarship recipient.
