Innsbruck – After almost a year of work, a barrier-free version of the Innsbruck Clinic website is now available in addition to the normal version. The new offer is primarily intended to appeal to people with learning and reading difficulties. The project manager Karin Flatz worked together with her team, which also consisted of people with reading difficulties, through several lockdowns.
Among other things, a simple sentence structure is new. In addition, the sentence length is limited, complex words are avoided where possible and provisions are explained. “The page should be clear. There should be good pictures on it. There should be little text. The site should be easy to use. People with learning difficulties should also find their way around the website, ”says project manager Flatz. “That is important to us.” The offer to have the page read to you has also been introduced. As an alternative to inquiring by phone, it is also possible to send questions to the operator by e-mail. “This is particularly helpful for deaf people who are very reluctant to make phone calls,” explains Flatz.
Experts expect such offers to become more and more important as the target group continues to grow due to demographics. (TT)
