Alternative format definitions

Alternative Format Definition of Alternative Formats & Target Groups
BSL (British Sign Language) Sign Language is a visual means of communicating using gestures, facial expression, and body language. Sign language is used mainly by people who are Deaf or have hearing impairments1


Braille is a tactile reading and writing system used by blind, visually impaired or deafblind people who cannot access print materials. It uses raised dots to represent the letters of the print alphabet. It also includes symbols to represent punctuation, mathematics and scientific characters, music, computer notation and foreign languages2
 Easy Read The presentation of text in an accessible, easy to understand format. It is often useful for people with learning disabilities, and may also be beneficial for people with other conditions affecting how they process information3 
 Audio The use of audio is particularly important for many vision impaired people who do not use braille. In addition, people with learning difficulties or dyslexia often find it easier to listen to information rather than read it4 
 Large Print Professional print services take into account the needs of vision impaired people including: colours and contrast, suitable font styles, layout, paper quality and weight, text and line spacing. Large print documents are created from an original document and then re-designed into a format that is acceptable to a vision impaired reader5
