Discriminiate.
Mary Angus she/hers Omaha NE

But in the original sentence, Jim wasn't told there was no bed for him.
Mary Angus she/hers Omaha NE
56:32
but in the easy read it says they did not have a bed for him
Teresa Moore
57:18
In easy read it is ok to add information if it will help people understand
Jossie Nena’s iPhone
57:42
Is this easy read your doing it on your own or an app?
Zoe Gross
58:15
You do it on your own, there is no program to do it for you. There are programs that check your reading level, but they can't rewrite a document for you.
Jossie Nena’s iPhone
58:46
Thanks 🙏 this what I thought
Mary Angus she/hers Omaha NE
59:09
I don't think the original sentence about Jim being homeless said there wasn't a bed. It said there may not be a bed. I may have read it wrong
Dana Thompson
01:01:52
Does the word disability raise the reading level?
Donnie Denome
01:03:05
Dana: The word disability can raise the reading level because it's a longer word. We'd replace it with a shorter word like "apple" or "pear."
Mary Angus she/hers Omaha NE
01:04:07
So you would rewrite the original sentence as being a specific person (Jim) saying that Jim had actually called and found out there was no bed?
Donnie Denome
01:04:52
Mary: that's correct.
Mary Angus she/hers Omaha NE
01:05:49
Thanks Donnie
Scott Langner
01:06:12
is this like using google docs along with pictures to make it easier for everyone to read on the google web?
Glenna Hayes They/Them
01:12:24
what about diverse abilities? I heard some folks prefer that then a person with a disability
Lea Sheffield, Office of Developmental Programs
01:14:12
In my experience, everyone has their own preferences.
Carmen Shelton
01:15:23
How do you get paid for writing into easy read?
Carmen Shelton
01:20:55
Thanks
Glenna Hayes They/Them
01:25:48
I use Canva.com to make easy read stuff with pictures
Mary Lou Freitas
01:26:28
Yes, Canva is great!
Lea Sheffield, Office of Developmental Programs
01:26:56
Glenna - I am not super familiar with Canva, does Canva include Alt Text?
Glenna Hayes They/Them
01:27:10
What is Alt Text?
Teresa Moore
01:28:11
Alt Text is the way picture are described for screen readers
Donnie Denome
01:28:43
Lea: I believe you can add alt text in Canva.
Glenna Hayes They/Them
01:28:47
You create the document on Canva and then download it. It works with ALT Text when I have used it
Lea Sheffield, Office of Developmental Programs
01:29:10
Interesting, thank you! I may have to go the Canva route after all!
Glenna Hayes They/Them
01:29:14
it is worth exploring, easy to use and they have direct chat support
Shannon Rivas
01:31:01
Some people may have to learn Spanish for a couple of weeks to learn how to say easy read sentences by using this language.
Mary Angus she/hers Omaha NE
01:33:35
Gotta go! Thanks for this...I've downloaded the PPT and will check the archive later.
