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?

Get ready for the election with Easy Read voting guides
11 April 2019
Voting in an election can be a confusing and daunting process for many people. From knowing how to enrol to voting at a polling place or voting by mail, the information about how to vote can be long, complex and hard to understand. We recently worked with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to update three of its easy-to-read-guides so that everyone can take part in the next federal election, no matter their literacy level.
