Quote:

"Easy to Read Magazine is a website with editorial features in text that is easy to read and understand. The content is just a bit of fun: pop culture, lifestyle, curious facts.

It’s a website for people who find reading regular texts difficult and want an enjoyable distraction from daily cheerless news and worries.

However, the key point of Easy to Read Magazine is inclusion - full and equal participation in society of people with reading difficulties. The principle is: Having an informed opinion on trivial matters is essential to full and equal participation in society.

 

Easy to Read Magazine features the kind of topics you talk about when meeting up with friends. Its purpose is to provide information that enables people with reading difficulties to participate on an equal level in conversations about the latest pop culture topics. If verbal communication is difficult, showing friends the online article may be a substitute.

 

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities states the right to understandable information.

The UN probably didn’t have the right to information about a celebrity’s new hairstyle in mind. But I would gladly stand up in front of the UN members to make a passionate speech about the importance of trivia."
