What is an Easy Read video

In our last blog, we talked about our new Easy Read service, embedded Easy Read. Additionally, we now offer Easy Read videos.

Easy Read videos

Like our standard Easy Read booklet, information in our videos is laid out in easily digestible slides and accompanied by suitable images.

Specifically designed for adults with learning disabilities, Easy Read videos are an interactive alternative to our traditional booklets. Users can choose to watch, read, or even listen to your Easy Read video by including a voice over.

A voiceover can work as a great auditory aid to help understanding. Many individuals learn best by hearing and listening to information. Our Easy Read User Group has told us they can better understand information that is spoken, rather than written.

Reading and listening at the same time can increase language skills and comprehension, as well as your ability to multitask. Conversely, users can choose not to watch the video and just listen if they prefer.

Easy Read videos give users the opportunity to reveal part of the document at a time, which can make long or complex documents less overwhelming.

There are 3 company logos across the top (Criptic Arts, Arts Council England & Spread the Word), the document title is underneath, and below that there is an image of a girl sitting and leaning forward on a table, smiling.
