Easy-to-Read & accessible Information

Information can be made accessible for many target groups. Through its ICT-based focus, the KI-I offers accessibility adaptations of texts and documents and thus supports the accessibility of information. A main focus lies on the design of and the consulting about accessible PDF documents.

Easy-to-Read and easily understandable information

Apart from the main target group (people with learning difficulties, people with intellectual disabilities) many other people also profit from Easy-to-Read. Among others that would be people with foreign mother-tongue, functionally analphabetic people, people with a low level of education and, to a certain extent, deaf people.

Apart from laws, there are many other things, where a translation into Easy-to-Read makes sense: e.g. information for safety at work, training materials, travel information, public authority's information and many more. Also it is possible to document meetings, presentations and workshops by drawn minutes and to adapt their language for the different target groups in the audience. The KI-I offers translations into Easy-to-Read as an extensive and professional service to authorities, organisations and companies. In addition the KI-I team is engaged in the advancement of the topic on a national and international level and is doing research in the new combination of easy language and ICT.
