IHTM02172 - Communications: Taxpayers with disabilities/special needs: services to blind and partially sighted customers

If someone asks for a special service because they are visually impaired, you must do what you can to provide it, if necessary after consultation with the Products and Process Team (PPT) in Ferrers House.

The special services we can provide include

Large print

  • Letters
    • You can use large print (14 point or larger) for anyone who requests it. The correspondent will probably tell you what point size they need. Only use capitals where necessary (such as, at the beginning of sentences). A string of capital letters is hard to read.
  • Forms
    • Please contact the (PPT) in Ferrers House if you receive any requests for forms in large print. PPT will get copies of the forms from the Visually Impaired Media Unit.
