ACCESSIBLE CONTENT: Readability Analyzer

Illustration of different types of printed books

Here are three tips to follow when creating accessible website content:

– Keep it simple.
– Keep it short.
– Keep it clear.

To accommodate users with learning disabilities, reading disorders, or who speak English as a second language, it is suggested that you write content at an 8th grade reading level.

How can you test the readability of your content?

Use Readability Analyzer, a free online tool that can help you estimate the readability of a passage of text using the Flesch Reading Ease, Fog Scale Level, Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level, and other metrics.
