Fantastic resource From EA.
 My 2 cents would be we need to put down font sizes with a short discussion/ literary review and cite it as an issue.  We can not resolve it, at least not quickly. I was looking at the "gathering good design suggestions" T this stage as gathering issues or potential issues.

All the best...Lisa

  Thank you so much for being so patient today – here is an example of some of the difficulties we have – font sizes!  There is a debate about what makes easy reading for those with visual impairments and dyslexia  but it can depend on the font used and personal preferences as Neil has mentioned even though we have Clear Print guidelines http://www.robwaller.org/SC10ClearPrint_v5.pdf   

 
 
 I would not know where you would like to see this document so am sending it via email in case it is not relevant.
