Lower literacy: it’s not the user, it’s the product!

A presentation at A11yNYC - Accessibility New York City in in New York, NY, USA by Damien Senger

Reading is a complex activity for our brains. We need to associate letters with sounds, and to understand the meaning of this music. Unfortunately for some users, this does not always work smoothly. It is complicated for people with reading or cognitive impairments but also for everybody depending on the context. Luckily, there are a lot of small improvements and tips every designer, content-writer and developer can use in a project to improve the life of all users.
