Pattern Accessibility Formatting: An Overview
Our Pattern Accessibility Formatting offers two amazing formats:
- Low-Visibility Accessible Patterns (LVA): Tailored to knitters who require larger, clearer fonts and specific font families, sizes, and line spacing. These patterns contain only written directions, accommodating the needs of legally blind or visually impaired knitters, ensuring they don’t miss out on the delight of your stunning designs.
- Screen-Reader Accessible Patterns (SRA): Bid farewell to the days of voice recorders! SRA patterns are crafted to work seamlessly with read-aloud devices. Knitters can now navigate through patterns row by row using their trusty devices.
The Simple Process
To make your patterns accessible, simply send us your designs, and we’ll handle the rest! We’ll provide the formatted patterns as separate PDFs, meticulously checked for read-aloud function compatibility across various devices. Our assistance extends beyond formatting; we can help you create an accessibility statement for your pattern descriptions and choose the right tags for discoverability by those in need. Even better, this service stands alone and can be applied to your entire pattern collection for a dedicated focus on accessibility.
Confidentiality and Respect for Your Intellectual Property
This is a highly professional service that values confidentiality and respects your intellectual property. At rhyFlower Knits, we understand the worth of your creative work and treat all files sent to us with strict confidentiality. Rest assured that your patterns, charts, schematics, and any other materials remain secure and protected throughout the process. Once the project is complete, we do not retain any of your intellectual property, granting you full ownership and control over your designs. Our commitment to professionalism extends beyond; it includes safeguarding your creative assets and respecting your unique vision. Partner with us for services that prioritize the integrity of your work and maintain the confidentiality you deserve.
