Large Print Transcription

Many people are unable to read standard print and are therefore restricted from accessing large amounts of important information. This includes people with partial sight, people with dyslexia and people with age related sight loss. Large print gives freedom of access to information. Companies who supply their documents in large print are better able to provide a complete service to their customers and are able to reach a much wider audience.

Producing a document in large print is not as straight forward as simply using a larger font or enlarging the size of a standard print document on a photocopier. The original document must be reformatted and edited with great care to guarantee accessibility to the end user without compromising the original document.

Our large print transcription service

All Formats offer a highly professional service, transcribing standard print into accurate large print documents. We have a vastly experienced team who have developed techniques to produce quality large print that is consistent with current guidelines. We strive for readers of our large print documents to have the same experience as those who access the standard print version.

The transcriptions that we supply are individually tailored to each of our clients to allow us to meet all of their needs. We are also able to adjust any document produced to meet the specific requirements that some end users may have.

What we can transcribe

All manner of documents can be transcribed into large print. Below are some examples of the type of documents that we have experience in transcribing:

Our process

We receive documents in a number of different ways. The preferred method is receiving documents in an electronic form but we are also able to transcribe from hard copy. Once the document is received it will be analysed by the All Formats team and an appropriate layout will be decided upon. It will then be transcribed into large print and reformatted to ensure the greatest level of accessibility. Items such as tables and diagrams are generally replaced or reformatted to enable them to be presented in large print.

The standard typeface that we use for large print is 18pt Arial as it is deemed the font accessible to the largest number of people. We can print documents in monochrome or colour and usually print on standard white paper but other choices are available. We offer a number of different cover and binding options so clients can choose what is most appropriate for them. The transcribed items can be sent back to the client or straight to the end user.

Secure transcription and quality control

All transcription work is carried out in a secured environment and by authorised staff who follow strict security guidelines. This means that clients can have ultimate confidence in All Formats transcribing their highly sensitive information. We also have control procedures in place to guarantee high quality and accurate transcriptions.

All Formats have a standard five-day turnaround time for transcribing information into large print. When desired by the client we can negotiate a faster turnaround time for documents. All of our transcription services are available at very reasonable rates. The cost to transcribe into large print starts from as little as £1.50 per large print page produced. The total cost of transcription varies depending upon the size and complexity of the document.
