About Newswest On-line easyread.

Newswest on-line easyread is a volunteer project to make our recent print articles available and accessible to readers who need an easier to read format.  By bringing content on-line, our readers can use their computer browsers or mobile devices to change text size and style to improve their reading experience.  We aim to help those that use assistive technology like screen readers to have better access to our content too.  Accessibility features of Newswest On-line easyread are discussed in a separate post.

Article Updates:

The dates on which new articles will be posted may vary, but we aim to post the newest editions of Newswest almost as soon as they are available on the local newsstand.  Articles on-line may appear slightly different than those in print for technical reasons and because late changes by the print editors may not be available to the easyread volunteers.  Advertising content may not appear on-line at present.  You can subscribe to the  Newswest On-line easyread rss feed to be informed of when the newest articles appear. This news-feed can also be delivered to your e-mail.
