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.

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.

Different formats of Easy Read may also be called Easy English or simple English.

We talk to one disability service provider about the role of Dungeons & Dragons in developing social skills that can be carried into the day-to-lives of people as they take part in the community.
