Scientific Services Laboratory commissioned a project for the design of a smoke alarm informational brochure. The intended audience was the illiterate and people whose first language is not English, who may not feel existing alarms are accessible to them due to the complex, written instructions. Surveys and discussions with people with poor language skills was key in generating ideas for manual design, then testing the manual with those people to develop improvements for the design and implementation of the product.
