The right to understand

TEDxO'Porto · 15:38 · Filmed Mar 2011

Medical, legal, and financial documents should be easy to read, but too often they aren’t. With spot-on (and funny) examples, Sandra Fisher Martins shows how overly complex language separates us from the information we need — and three steps to change that. In Portuguese with English subtitles. (Filmed at TEDxO'Porto.)
