It is full of the jargon and difficult words that councils, health services, banks and other services use far too often in their information. This means people with learning disabilities or literacy problems are immediately at a disadvantage.

We are trying to encourage organisations to use 'Easy Read' information and use simpler words. The dictionary uses pictures and has examples of the easier words that can be used instead of the jargon.

We will be adding to this dictionary as time goes on and would appreciate any feedback or comments. You can send me your comments by e-mailing me at stuart@askvera.org
