  11. 11. Your questions Will adding EasyRead aid inclusive design? Depends on needs of the audience – perhaps focus on core needs and adapt just that content. Browse Aloud vs Jaws – which works best? They’re not incompatible but Browse-Aloud is very useful to use – there’s also TalkBar. CMS options for accessibility – don’t forget your internal users not just the content it’s making Responsive design vs specific mobile site? Can be a big problem for a site that has lots of users and lots of different interactions eg public sector – may be better to work in chunks
