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?

Technology, ethics and human rights
9 September 2021
People with disability need to have access to information about their everyday lives. This is important as a basic human right, and for privacy, safety and protection from discrimination. They also need the opportunity to have a say about decisions that affect their lives. To make sure this happens, they might need both accessible technology and the opportunity to have a conversation with the right person. The Australian Human Rights Commission has released its Final Report into Human Rights and Technology.

Make your branding more accessible

Being on brand doesn’t have to come at the cost of being accessible. You can have a unique design while including people with different vision impairments. There are many elements that create the foundation of an accessible brand, such as colour contrast, larger text sizes, clear fonts and sentence case.
