h4. Details on largePrint for future reference

While I was reading up on largePrint, I found some good resources for the definition. I'm copying these below for the record. I'll note that the National Association for the Visually Handicapped has clear guidelines for large print. These are (going from [wikipedia|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large-print])
* Maximum limits on size, thickness, and weight
* Minimum limits on margins
We discussed three use cases as the basic types (the sensory modes change the story, but the story is the same)
There are three use cases below
* a person looking for a specific media type (video) with a mediafFeature (caption) - media type+mediaFeature does the job well
* a person driving in a car who can only work with audio content or content that can be expressed in audio - needs accessMode to easily determine useful content
* a teacher who is leading a class, where some of the students have disabilities. They would like to find resources for the class, finding, if possible, the best resources that can be used by the most students - another case for accessMode
* are there more?
** When a book is made available, it may be available with different accessmModes and mediafFeatures (the current bookshare is a very good example... a book can be available in braille (brf), Daisy with images, Daisy w/o images and Daisy Audio, all as adaptations of the source book
** When a book is available on O'Reilly or Amazon, it may be available in a few formats from the offering page (paper, epub, mobi, pdf), hardbound, paperback, audioCD or AudioService (Audible). Sometimes these are available for access directly from the page (O'Reilly). Other cases (Amazon), has links over to that page.
