Posting for a colleague:

“Hi, I'm getting pushback from vendors when I tell them to use a minimum font size of 12 points in print materials (9 points for footnotes and captions). Is there an "official" source I can cite for these font minimums, or are there in fact NO font minimums, as they are claiming? Which would seem bizarre to me because people with low vision should be able to read printed pages coming from the California Community Colleges. Your advice on this is very much appreciated!”
