Moors Valley Country Park in Dorset decided to improve visits to the park for people with visual impairments.
Living Options created large print guides for Moors Valley Country Park in Dorset to improve visits to the park for people with visual impairments. Large print guides present the information in a format that is easier to read and understand.
The guides are specifically aimed at visitors with some sight, but who have difficulty with everyday activities, like reading and recognising faces, such as Macular Degeneration or Glaucoma. The guides may also be beneficial for visitors who have dyslexia or where English is their second language.
Creating Large Print guides and maps isn’t just about enlarging the print, a wide range of techniques are used to make the guides more accessible for visually impaired visitors. This enables people with a visual impairment to enjoy the experience without having to constantly rely on someone else’s support.
“It is important to us to provide quality facilities and information to make Moors Valley as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. This is a fantastic new resource that will allow even more of our visitors to learn about our natural heritage.”Katie Davies, Dorset Council Communication Ranger at Moors Valley Country Park
The Large Print guide at Moors Valley Country Park is available on request from the Information Point in the Visitor Centre.
