The internet is very useful

for people with disabilities

to talk to eachother or to other people.

But sometimes the internet is not easy to use.
A project called Able to Include

wants to help people with intellectual disabilities

use social media, like Facebook, on a phone or tablet.
9 organisations from 5 countries in Europe

are working together to make apps easier to use.

Some tools will change written words into easy-to-read.

Other tools will change written words into voice or images.

 

This newsletter tells you what is happening in the project.

We hope you will like this newsletter.

If you have any questions or comments, you can write to us at information@inclusion-europe.org
