Large Print Communications

Large print communications are very helpful with near-blind elderly.

I have a friend who is legally blind in a nursing home. I write her regularly with
30 point type on 11 X 14 paper from my laser-printer. I set the type font to BOLD,
then set the print option to LANDSCAPE.

She can hold the paper closely and read the material easily.

I never sent her snapshots, but go to a Kinkos (a U.S. nationwide chain that provides inexpensive color photo enlargements) and have the snaps enlarged to 8 1/2 by 11 inches.

By the same token there is no law that legal documents have to be set in tiny six-point type. You can put a will or power of attorney in large-type also, eliminating all issues as to the authenticity, should the document be challenged.
