UKAAF (UK Association for Accessible Formats) is the industry association whose mission is to improve the social inclusion of blind and partially sighted people, and others with a print impairment, by promoting accessible formats.

It does this by:

  • Setting standards and promoting best practice for quality accessible information based on user needs.
  • Enabling businesses and organisations to deliver a quality service to meet the needs of people with print impairments

UKAAF is a powerful blend of transcription experience, industry expertise and accessible format users. Its members include individuals and organisations with a vested interest in the provision of quality accessible formats: transcribers, service providers, educators, researchers, print services, publishers, and end users.

UKAAF represents people with print impairments. They believe that because format quality matters, end users should have genuine input into the development of standards of accessible information and by collecting and sharing users' views with service providers and transcribers they can help them to deliver a quality service which meets users' needs.

UKAAF has a User Advisory Group so they can include members in ongoing research and consultation on key accessible format issues.
