The Large Print format offers benefits for people under the age of 60 with perfectly good eyesight. There are obvious benefits of large print for the visually impaired, beginning or reluctant readers and ESL/ELL students. But that’s not all. Here are more unexpected large print lovers:
Bouncing People: Have you ever tried to read a 10pt font size from 3 feet away while exercising? It’s really hard. Next time you hit the treadmill, grab a large print book instead.
