Providing Braille and Large Print Format Statements for Equitable Access
In today’s world, enterprise companies play a critical role in people’s lives. They provide a wide range of services, including banking, insurance, medical records, investments, and loans. For people who are blind or visually impaired, accessing these services can be a challenge. However, companies can ensure equitable access by offering Braille and large print format statements.
People who are blind or visually impaired face a significant challenge in accessing services due to the often-inaccessible nature of printed statements. These statements typically rely on small font sizes and intricate designs that are difficult for visually impaired individuals to read. This can make it challenging for these individuals to manage their records independently and access the same opportunities and services as their sighted counterparts.
