Design that is easy to read
If you want to use most web sites, you have to be able to read them. The same is true for many other things we use: computer programs, product instructions, timetables, medicine bottles and leaflets.
This web site is a project of researchers, practitioners, and people who have reading difficulties. We want to work together to improve design for people who do not read easily.
If you design for mobile, for accessibility, for seniors, for people with low literacy, for people who have never had the opportunity to learn to read, or for anyone really: welcome. So far, we have found that what we do has a great deal in common.
Workshops and their results
We have had full workshop at HCI 2008 and CHI 2010, and a mini-workshop at STC 2009. Please comment on the framework that we are working on; read about our previous workshops; or contact us to suggest a new workshop.
- Our framework: audiences and advice
- Full workshop: HCI 2008, Liverpool, UK
- Mini workshop: STC 2009, May, Atlanta GA
- Full workshop: CHI 2010, Altanta, GA
We are also beginning to compile some resources for designers, and some personal stories that we hope will inspire you.
