About Easy Read
Easy Read is a writing style that includes:
- key information
- clear headings
- simple language
- large font
- lots of white space
- meaningful images.
Easy Read documents do not replace the original. They are companion documents that can be offered to people who would prefer to read a simpler version.
Ideally, Easy Read documents should be read with a support
person who can explain hard concepts or find more information if needed.
