Our Easy Read transcription services
Easy Read is a specialist format that combines images with clear text. It is designed to help organisations communicate with people with a learning disability. Easy Read has been developed by and with adults with a learning disability to meet their needs.
Our Easy Read Service is produced by our in-house experts who have experience of dealing with a wide range of documents. We have worked closely with a leading consultant on Easy Read production to develop our service and ensure that documents are fully accessible for the target audience. We run an Easy Read user group in partnership with the UK’s leading learning disability charity MENCAP to make sure we produce the best and most accessible Easy Read documents we can. We believe it’s fundamentally important that we continue to receive direct input from the people most likely to use the documents, and are dedicated to the continual improvement of our service to ensure ongoing accessibility.
We have produced Easy Read documents for the NHS, the Scottish Parliament, Bristol Community Health CIC, Bristol City Council and many housing associations and local authorities.
