This page contains all our accessibility information, such as our VPAT report, WCAG regulations and more.
VPAT Report – WCAG
For many years, we have been listed as an approved software by BDA Dyslexia. While the BDA do not sponsor products anymore, our work with them over the last 10 years has provided us with the insight and knowledge to ensure our platform is not only dyslexia-friendly, but is easily accesible for all.
In 2021, we held a webinar Q&A outlining the educational benefits to MindGenius users. One of the questions asked was our stance surrounding WCAG regulations. In response to this, we have now produced a VPAT document, which you can download for free, highlighting our WCAG regulations.
DSA – Access to Work
The DSA (Disabled Students’ Allowance) is a grant available to students that have a disability, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty or neurological difference (such as dyslexia or dyspraxia). It covers specialist equipment and software that can aid your learning (such as MindGenius), as well as non-medical helpers and extra travel.
The DSA grant is funding organised by the government which can pay for support for those eligible. In the case of those with dyslexia, this can include funding towards the cost of:
Assistive technology equipment & training – funding is proportionate based on employer size.
Coping strategies training – currently this is fully funded by the DSA grant.
Applications for funding can be made online via the link below or by visiting the government website (gov.uk/access-to-work).
At MindGenius, we pride ourselves on having a platform suitable for everyone. In the UK alone, it’s estimated 10 percent of people have a form of dyslexia, and dyslexia has often been viewed as a disability. But with appropriate support, dyslexia can be a positive trait that enhances intelligence, imagination, curiosity, and intuition.
Visual learning helps people learn, create, communicate, and retain knowledge better. Mindmapping uses shapes, colors, and a graphical outline organization, and helps to create, organize, plan, and collaborate much easier.

We are always looking to help our users whatever way we can. WE have produced a support guide, detailing ways you can contact us, and also contains some FAQ’s for you to look at.
