Long sentences, difficult words or anglicisms often make everyday texts difficult to understand. People with learning disabilities often cannot fully understand the content of many texts. However, all people should be able to participate in social life in a self-determined way. This is their basic right according to the UN Convention.

Here is an example in easy language about easy language
For what easy language
Many texts are often too long. Many texts have difficult words. Many texts have foreign words. Reading such texts is very difficult for people with disabilities. The United Nations has written a law on the rights of people with disabilities.
People with disabilities should have the same rights as all people. Everyone should have access to information and digital life. Texts in plain language are particularly helpful for better understanding.
Texts in easy language can help these people:
- People who can’t read well
- People who find it difficult to learn
- People who don’t speak German very well
- People who have dementia
You can also reach more people with easy language on your website. Easy language is also important for accessibility in itself. Many companies have to implement these rules.
There is a set of rules of the federal government on barrier-free access. This is abbreviated to BITV. That means “barrier-free information technology regulation”. This describes how digital solutions have to be for people with disabilities.
