Recently I was talking to a workmate who has dyslexia. Any tips for other people I asked? “Hmmm,” she said, “I don’t really know. I guess, for me, I won’t read a book unless the writing looks nice.”
And there it is. An uber-simple strategy for every document, every note, every message of hope or doom, bottled or otherwise.
To make writing accessible, use:
· A clear font.
· Lots of spaces.
· Bullet points.
· Cheerful cartoons and the like.
Easy! -But well-worth reminded ourselves.
