COVID-19 has been a fast-moving disease, killing millions around the globe. Many groups have created information to help public understanding. But much of the language can prove challenging to:
– non-native language speakers
– people with low literacy
– people with cognitive disabilities
– and the Deaf
The EasyCovid19 project addresses this barrier. Text, images, and video from trusted sources are rewritten in plain language. Test centers are located by easy-to-understand search engines. And tools from other sites will be added to strengthen those search engines. The final project goal: to create this same resource in every country around the world. Curious to learn more?
