Creating accessible opportunities for all our clients is always at the forefront of our work - and the services we provide reflects that.
Improving a person’s knowledge, independence and safety is of paramount importance for all –
including those with vision loss – and braille, large print and specially recorded audio documents help
accomplish this for those with little or no sight.
Following the introduction of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), which came into force as a vehicle to help combat discrimination faced by the Ontario's population of disabled people, we, as a company, are making every effort to help public service providers bring their policies into line with the legislation. Under the Act, companies and all public service providers have an obligation to make reasonable adjustment to the way they operate in order to accommodate the needs of persons with a disability. For us, our mission is to encourage them to make their communications available to the sight impaired in formats they can readily access - like, braille, for instance, or large print and audio recordings.
The services we provide our clients are always of the highest standard and we take great pride in everything we do for them. Upon taking on a new client, we give them our absolute assurance that we will do everything within our powers to meet their needs and requirements and also to promise them that their business interests will be protected at all times.
Here at Accessible Printing Inc., all our production staff have been trained in the use and reading of braille. Everything we produce passes through several production channels before it is eventually dispatched to the client. We provide certified braille printing services, through the only certifying body in Canada, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB).
It heartens us greatly to hear clients saying that they have seen a significant increase in business now that they are offering braille and large print supplied by us. It is equally encouraging to hear the same clients commenting on the letters of thanks they have received from their sight impaired customers.
Our endeavors to encourage more companies to embrace braille and alternate reading formats for their visually impaired clients is an ongoing process, and we are delighted with the number of businesses who have responded favorably to our initiatives. Suffice to say that once company directors and business proprietors come to realize the significant impact Braille, large print and audio recordings have had on their profitability, among other things, they can't ever imagine being without them.
