LRS has four basic formats available, which depend upon the original material and the student.
Vertical (Calendar) Format
This innovative format, designed by LRS' founder some 35 years
ago, remains our most popular. This calendar-style format allows the
type size to be enlarged to 18 pt and above while retaining the page
layout of the original, and maintaining a small closed-book size,
typically 9" x 11".
This format is ideal for literature. The horizontal half-page
format displays the original page side by side, with the top half on
the left, the bottom on the right. This means the book is read like an
ordinary book, and also allows an extra large type size of 20 - 22 pt
with a typical closed book size of 8" x 8".
Full Page Format
For many lower grade books, especially picture books, it is
possible to enlarge the type while keeping the original page intact and
a maximum size around 8.5" x 11". Since these books are usually less
than 32 pages they are usually spiral bound.
Flip Chart Format
In the case of keyboarding books, or books to be used by multi-disabled
students, this flip chart format is ideal. Each enlarged half page is
only printed on one side, and the stiff cover, along with the spiral
binding, allows the book to stand up by itself and the pages to be
flipped over one at a time to read.
