Comprehensible, inclusive, equal? Accessibility of Easy Finnish journalism and public communication during the COVID-19 pandemic
University of Helsinki, Mikko Virtanen, PhD
Our project investigates a fundamental but little investigated area of crisis communication: Easy Language journalism and public communication. Specifically, we focus on i) Easy Finnish as used during the COVID-19 pandemic and ii) the additional demands that crisis communication brings to accessibility. Our data combines textual (etic) and interview data (emic).
