Subject: Text accessibility for people with dyslexia



During a Skype discussion with Lisa Seeman and Neil Milliken I mentioned research that (amongst many other things) showed evidence that highlighting key words in text enhances comprehension for people with dyslexia. Lisa proposed that I send this to the list, so here is the link to it:





http://grupoweb.upf.edu/WRG/thesis/Luz_Rello-PhD_Thesis-2014.pdf .





The key recommendations from the research are included in Luz Rello's DysWebxia model which is summarized in chapter 16.





Best regards





Mike
