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?

Do dyslexic-friendly fonts work?
13 September 2023
Between 10 and 20 per cent of Australians live with dyslexia, but what exactly is it? And how can we make sure we’re communicating in a dyslexic-friendly way?
According to consistent findings over the past decade, dyslexic-friendly fonts still have a long way to go before they can be considered an asset to the dyslexic community.
We looked into the nuts and bolts behind dyslexic-friendly fonts to see just how dyslexic-friendly they are.
