How materials should be handed out

Many times accessible materials like braille or tactile graphics are produced and compiled into a big binder to be handed out during a meeting. Without additional tabs or markings, this is equivalent to handing out to a sighted individual a print book with no table of contents, and expecting them to find a particular passage in the book while keeping up with the speaker.

When using different sets of printed materials during the presentation, make sure braille, large print and/or electronic materials are as easy to identify as print materials. For instance, if the meeting includes an activity that requires filling out a form, provide the form separately in braille, large print or as an individual electronic file. Also, make sure you provide a descriptive name for all items.
