What's it like to be a non-reader?

To see how effective symbols can be in extending people’s understanding, put yourself in the position of a non-reader by trying this test.

The vocabulary on the grid below is taken from the exhibits at a Swedish museum.

See how many words you know and how many you think you can work out. Then click on the 2nd tab to see it with symbols. (apologies to our Swedish customers!)
