Thousands of Irish people experience a print disability and cannot access standard printed material. As a result, they are missing out on vital information and services. People who are blind or vision impaired may require audio, Braille, large print or electronic text to access your information.
NCBI’s skilled experts and production teams work with public and private organisations to provide solutions that deliver information in accessible formats for people who cannot read standard print.
We have the knowledge and expertise to help you communicate effectively with people with sight loss. Our Library and Media Centre converts standard printed materials to accessible formats, including Braille, audio, large print and digital audio.
How can we help you?
We are passionate about equal access to information and services for all. There are 51,718 people with sight loss in Ireland and this number is rising. We work with all levels of government, public libraries, educational institutions, banks and utility companies to ensure that your services and information can be easily accessed by people with sight loss.
We can also advise on improving the accessibility of standard printed material, through the use of clear print design principles. Clear print is a design approach for written documents which makes the overall text easier to read for everyone, including people with low vision.
