That helps a Braille reader who knows nothing about font sizes, and type
point.

HI, Deb, just jumping into the conversation, here, but I believe braille is
about equivalent to 36 pt, to give you an idea of the size we are talking
about when we say font sizes. Font 12 in Times Roman is generally what
sighted people are comfortable with. Does that help? Or am I just
rambling??!

In other words, my font size, and type point are readable by you.
