Our Approach

Engage the Ecosystem

We drive change by convening experts across the reading ecosystem to implement technology on all surfaces and for every community. The shift to a personalized reading paradigm requires the collaboration of tech, publishing, and educational partners.


Readability Matters ignites research to improve implementation recommendations. New infrastructure is necessary to support the scalability of individual reading formats for implementation in education, business, and beyond. Policies, systems, and thinking must change to drive the use of personalized reading formats to the mainstream. Cross-sector teams must create standards and systems to ensure consistent delivery.
