The right to understand Sandra FisherMartins on TED.com

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. (Recorded at TEDxO’Porto, March 2011, in O’Porto, Portugal. Duration: 15:38.)
