      Large print resources

      Larger, 18 font text size and easy-to-follow layout

      Our large print resources follow large print guidelines. They include the same information as the standard format resources, but can be helpful for:

      • people with vision impairment
      • people with print disability (for example due to a learning disability, literacy difficulties or physical impairment)
      • anyone who would prefer to access resources that have a larger text size and a clear layout.

      All of our large print resources are available in the following accessible formats:

      • large print PDF: best for viewing on screen and printing
      • large print accessible PDF: a digital resource with added tags that is compatible with screen readers
      • e-text - accessible Word: a digital resource that can be used with screen reading and magnification software

      You can also request any Action on Hearing Loss information resource in large print, Braille or audio format by telephoning our free, confidential Information Line on 0808 808 0123 or emailing informationline@hearingloss.org.uk.

      Our large print resources have been developed with generous funding from the National Lottery through the National Lottery Community Fund, as part of the UK Hear to Inform and Connect project. This project provides free, tailored, local information about hearing loss and tinnitus to help older people address their hearing loss and stay connected with their friends, family and community.

      Some of our resources are also available to view and download from our website in languages other than English and Easy Read format, which uses simple language and pictures.

      Find out more about the accessible resources developed as part of this project.
