Our peer-researchers from Proqualis/KI-I and PIKSL have already started with the user tests. An important part of the tests is the testing of the symbols in the Easy Reading tool in terms of comprehensibility.
The peer researchers tested many different symbols to decide which symbols should be used for the final Easy Reading tool and which symbols need to be changed. They documented all their results and discussed them with the developers. The frequent exchange between developers and peer researchers is very important for the Easy Reading development process. It ensures that people with cognitive disabilities can use the final tool in their daily lives to easily access difficult websites.
The Easy Reading tool is in the final stages of development and we are looking forward to introducing it soon.
