EasyRead: An app to increase spacing within and between words - Fri 30th Jun 2017
We are pleased to announce the availability of EasyRead. This app can be downloaded for free from the Chrome webstore.
After the publication of our research on the efficacy of Dyslexie font (Marinus et al., 2016) we received many requests from parents and practitioners on how to change the settings in word processing programs like MS Word to mimic the spacing settings of Dyslexie font. In response to this we developed EasyRead, which applies Dyslexie letter-spacing and word-spacing settings to arbitrary web pages in order to improve readability. Although the app does not work on MS Word, it can be used in conjunction with online text-processing programs like Google docs.
