Word-Bank
We use Word-Bank, an automated dictionary plug-in to increase website comprehension for everyone.
Word-Bank automatically finds difficult language then adds a hyperlink to an easy read definition supported by an image so that the reader gains a clear understanding without having to leave the page. Word-Bank uses Photosymbols to support word meaning. Photosymbols is the image-bank used by the Trust.
By adding depth to our website content in this way, Word-Bank encourages meaningful understanding of our website's information while improving online engagement.
To use Word-Bank, simply select the On/Off button on the web page.
