We specialise in accessibility
We create documents that are easy to read and websites that are easy to use
You know accessibility is something you should be doing, but you may not be so sure why, or how, to go about it.
Maybe you’re not sure if it’s worth the investment of time or resources.
Easy Read is sometimes called Easy English or simple English.
The Easy Read format presents information in a way that is very easy to understand. In its simplest form, it uses images to support text, large font sizes and plenty of white space. Easy Read is currently used extensively for audiences with disability. However, it is also becoming more widely used for audiences with low literacy levels or where English is an additional language.
Literacy is the ability to understand, evaluate, use and engage with written texts to take part in society, reach goals, and develop knowledge and potential.
Did you know that, in Australia today, over 40% of adults have a literacy level below what is considered enough to get by in everyday life?

People with disability at higher risk during disasters because of lack of accessible information
17 January 2020
According to the World Health Organisation and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, people with disability face more challenges, are overlooked and are at a higher risk in times of disaster. A key reason for this is because often critical information is not in a format they can access, understand or use.
