Embedded Easy Read for your website – what it is and how it works
We have recently expanded our Easy Read services to include embedded Easy Read and Easy Read videos. We have decided to write several blogs to help explain what these are and how they might be useful to your company. But, first, let’s go back to basics and talk about Easy Read.
One of our most popular formats, Easy Read, is a format designed for adults with learning disabilities. Easy Read transcribes lengthy and complex documents into simple and concise texts that are easy for everyone to understand. All text is accompanied by images that aid understanding.

Most of our clients ask for digitally accessible Easy Read. Digitally accessible means your document can be read online using accessible software such as refreshable braille displays, screen readers and magnifiers. Easy Read can also be converted into a print ready PDF for printing purposes.
Traditionally, we have transcribed Easy Read into booklets that are easy to put online and distribute by email and print.

Following several customer requests, we now offer new styles of Easy Read that can be watched and listened to as videos or read as part of a website.

Your company has posted about a grant people can apply for to help with funding. You decide to have the application form transcribed into Easy Read so more people can apply. You also decide to embed the application form onto your website, so applicants can apply without having to download or print application forms. The application process is streamlined and simple, especially for people with learning disabilities.
How embedded Easy Read works
We provide the appropriate Easy Read text and the most suitable images for your IT department to embed onto your website. We transcribe your original text into Easy Read and send it to you electronically via email, as we would an Easy Read booklet. You simply extract the text and accompanying images from the Word or Excel sheet we send you. You can let us know what format works best for you.
