APH Large Print Textbooks
The Accessible Textbooks Department has created a new process for creating large print textbooks in standard textbook size with a variety of fonts, font sizes and in full color.
The new process has taken into consideration the research collected and conducted by APH, including the research conducted by APH’s Educational Research Department, Large Print Guidelines for Optimal Readability.
APH large print textbooks use 18-point type as the minimum font size along with larger font sizes for multi-level headings. Sidebars, footnotes, page numbering and graphics will all be handled in a new fashion that will be more helpful to low vision readers.
