Solutions Rooted In Science

Our solutions and tools that make it easier to read are designed and developed based on available scientific research. Each tool is tested to make sure it is effective and to know where we can improve them.

Eye Tracker Research

On the measure of Average Number of Fixations, the participants achieved a slightly higher number of fixations while reading the text written in the OmoType font. When considering this result, compared to the Average Fixation measure, we see that children with dyslexia had multiple fixations that lasted shorter, which indicates that the text written in the OmoType font was more readable than others.

You can see complete results in the whitepaper below.

Fonts Comparison Research

The results showed that participants read faster and make fewer mistakes when the text is in the OmoType font. Based on purely visual preferences, OmoType got an average rating of 3.54 from the participants (1 being the lowest grade and 4 being the highest one).  OmoType was compared with Arial, Times New Roman, and Dyslexie font.

Some Dyslexia Research We Base Our Development On

Reading on Mobile Devices

Shorter lines of text on mobile devices improves reading speed in dyslexics. Also, the possibility of individual text configuration aids in reading.

Crowded Letters

Manipulation with a letter and line spacing in text help dyslexics to read faster with fewer errors and enhances reading comprehension.

Mental Rotation of Letters

Some dyslexic have problems with letters with the same shapes but different orientations. For some, this problem persists into adulthood.

Assistive Tech For Reading

An empowering aid that minimizes stigmatization, increases self-confidence, motivation for reading, and promotes independence.

Background Colors

Using warm background colors (like peach, orange, and yellow) have an impact on readability on screen for people with and without dyslexia.

Font

Font types have a significant impact on reading performance for dyslexics. Careful selection of the font helps with the readability of the text.

Reverse Inclusion

Recent research shows that settings that make reading easier for dyslexics make it easier for all readers.

DYSLEXIA FACTS

Dyslexia

A specific learning difficulty with a core problem in phonological processing. People with dyslexia have problems with matching the letters with the sounds of those letters and combinations that letters make.

Prevalence of Dyslexia

In the US 15 to 20% of the population have some of the symptoms of dyslexia; in EU prevalence is 9 to 12%. A big difference in this number is due to different orthographic system (different ways of spelling in different languages).

Signs of Dyslexia

Trouble with reading, spelling, writing and reading comprehension. These problems can influence learning and overall success in education.

Artistic Ways Of Thinking

Dyslexics have normal intelligence, original and “artistic” ways of thinking. That’s why dyslexia is an unexpected difficulty.

Benefits

Dyslexics are good in visual and creative fields. Many famous actors, painters, designers have dyslexia. Also, many successful entrepreneurs have dyslexia.

What Can Help?

Early identification and intervention, evidence-based and systematic reading instruction, and specific teaching approaches and strategies in the classroom.

Can Dyslexia Be Cured?

Dyslexia is not an illness, so it can’t be cured.  It is just different brain functioning or as we call it – neurodiversity. With the right support, dyslexics can become successful students and adults.

Can Dyslexics Learn to Read? 

If they receive effective and early intervention and support by the 3rd grade, they will have significantly fewer problems in learning to read. But, with appropriate support and practice, all dyslexics can be better in reading.

Early Signs of Dyslexia 

Signs are noticeable in the preschool years. Some of them are trouble recognizing rhyming patterns, difficulty learning, and remembering names of the letters, and a problem with separating spoken words into syllables and sound.
