Do you want your information to be accessible for everyone?
Scope can help you to create inclusive and accessible information. Our team of writers and speech pathologists use an evidence-based approach to designing and writing documents.
For every project we work on, we use testers with lived experience of disability and low English literacy – who assess your documents to ensure they are truly accessible before they reach your customers.
Why make your information more accessible?
Did you know that 44% of Australians have low English literacy?
Creating your documents in Easy English makes your information easy to understand for people with low English literacy, including those from CALD backgrounds and elderly people. It helps by reducing stress and uncertainty through clear information, simple language, and meaningful images. It also provides benefits for your business or organisation, including:
- Improved customer service
- Increased customer engagement
- Reduced risk of complaints
- Positive public image
- Reaching wider markets
Easy English in action
We work with businesses and organisations across a range of sectors to develop customer information in Easy English. Here are some recent examples of our best-practice Easy English conversions.

Not sure where to start? A focus group is a great way to identify your end users’ needs. We can facilitate accessible focus groups with our team of testers. With their lived experience of low English literacy, they are experts in helping you identify which documents or messages you should prioritise for your next translation project.
