VPSC is committed to ensuring our resources are available to all Victorians. We are proud to present the first set of our policy and guidance documents to be published in Easy Read and Text-only formats.

Easy Read is information that is presented in a way that is very easy to understand. In its simplest form, it uses images to support text, large font sizes, and plenty of white space. Easy Read is currently used extensively for audiences with disability. However, it is also becoming more widely used for audiences with low literacy levels.

Easy Read is sometimes also called Easy English or simple English.

The Text-only documents use the Easy Read version as their basis but are presented without the images.

All of these documents are additional versions of publications that have been written by VPSC and their original source is linked in the description boxes.

If you have any questions about our Easy Read publications, Text-only format, or accessibility standards, please contact us.
