Project Summary
By researching on various problems of reading difficulties and existing dyslexia-friendly designs, the findings indicated that there are no two dyslexics alike. This insight inspires the development of a typography generator to offer a variety of options and enable custom adjustment for the readers. For this project, Easiread – a prototype typography system with preset functions to help with problems of letter recognition, reading flow and visual stress has been created. Users can test and use Easiread in Google chrome to make custom-adjustments according to their needs for online text. They can also output the adjusted text if they prefer to read it in prints version. In the future with more technological supports, Easiread can be developed to support more languages and to include features like Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for printed books.
