If you love to sharpen your mind and boost your brain power, or just sit down and relax with a book of puzzles, here’s some great news. With a few tips and the right gear, you can enjoy crossword, Sudoku, or word search puzzles and more–no matter your level of vision. So pull up a chair and grab your pen. We’ve got the clues to get you started.
The first thing to know is There are plenty of puzzles in large print versions. And some are available in braille, too. Keep in mind that print and grid sizes may be different from book to book. For example, some books are labeled “extra large” or “jumbo.” So you can choose the size and contrast that works best for you.
You can also print your own large print puzzles from the Internet. Many are available as PDFs that you can open with Adobe Reader. And you can even increase the size before you print. Reach out to a Hadley learning expert if you have questions.
