How to achieve a Clear Print Document

Many thanks for sharing the link, http://www.mib.org/uk/professionals/accessibleinformation/text/Pages/clear_print.aspx.  This is something I can definately take back to my colleagues and also consider myself when producing work for my pupils.  It was very clear and very concise.

Alternative Formats

My thanks for EA Draffon for her inspiring video presentation.  Some quotes I particularly like:

  • “One size does not fit all”
  • “we like to read and listen to content in different ways at different times”
  • Always offer multiple formats where possible because we don’t know all the answers (in terms of what works best)

Use of Structured Documents

Oh how I wish I had known how to use these before I did my Level 3 Dyslexia qualification.  Formatting would have been so much easier and much much quicker.  I asked my niece this weekend if she had been taught how to structure documents.  Her answer was “no”.  She is studying Forensic Science at University.  I can feel a screencast coming on.  Watch this space…..
