Academics, businesses, students, researchers have one thing in common – Reports. These are generally pages and pages of detail, expressed as text, images, graphs and tables. Many hours are spent by report authors in crafting their reports into manageable literature all aimed at improving its readability. Yet, despite best efforts, many reports go unread. Perhaps some gets a cursory glance, with readers managing to flick through a few pages before the report is stored away to gather dust on a shelf or hidden away in a digital archive – They never quite reach the intended audience and the wealth of information they contained is wasted.
