Accessible design, content that delivers
I offer consultancy and training in making websites easy to use, well-written and effective. I’m particularly interested in creating designs that can be used by people with low digital skills, low literacy, or who have disabilities.
There are free resources on my websites:
- How to design for people who find reading difficult: Design to read
- An easy-to-learn process for creating effective web content: Editing that works
I currently run training in:
and other topics in user research and design. Please see Usability that Works.
