Introduction
Brett is pioneering a science and design practice of ‘Oral Information Management.’ About a billion adults are illiterate or innumerate world-wide. Two-thirds of these are women. Based on published empirical research, Brett designs solutions for this ‘oral’ population to enable safe and independent use of modern financial instruments, like mobile wallets, account statements and enterprise records.
