[access-uk] Articles for the blind

    Hi all,
I hope someone can help.
I have just become secretary for a blind bowls club.  I wish to send out 
entry forms for a forthcoming tournament to other blind bowls clubs.  If I 
print these forms and preprinted replies in a suitable large font is it 
acceptable to use the articles for blind service for both invitation and 
reply.  The replies will come to me and I am blind.

Regards
Philip
