Hello there!

My name is Lexi Schell and I am a current student of Butler University pursuing a degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I have a great affinity for advocating for accessibility for those who need special accommodations and appreciate the great lengths that you have taken in doing so. I am currently pursuing a research project which investigates the textual formatting preferences of people with aphasia in order to bolster reading comprehension. This is a language disorder which affects 2 million people in America alone. I was hoping to inquire if you might be receptive to the idea of including an Aphasia friendly formatting option on your next edition? My research aims to uncover spacing, color, and language-based preferences, and I would be happy to pass along my findings. Thank you very much for your consideration and feedback.

Kindest regards,
Lexi
