October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

Three million people are diagnosed with dyslexia each year. Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing, and spelling difficulties, affecting up to 20% of the population.

Standard typefaces are often difficult to read for people with dyslexia. The letters are hard to differentiate and words tend to jumble together. The dyslexic font, or dyslexie, is designed so that each letter is unique. Letters and words have extra distance between them to combat reversal and flipping of letters. Capital letters are bolder to help readers identify new sentences, and each letter is bottom-weighted.

eAudiobooks, as well, offer a different sensory experience that provides another reading solution that readers with visual, language, and processing challenges can all enjoy.
