Paper matters

Avoid glossy paper or laminated documents as these produce glare which can make them inaccessible.

In addition, make sure the paper is thick enough that print from one side of the paper does not show through to the other side.


  • Uncoated matte paper.
  • Make sure it's thick enough to avoid print on the other side showing through.


  • Glossy, coated paper.
  • Glossy surfaces reflect light, creating a glare that makes text harder to read.
