Designing for users with dyslexia


Use images and diagrams to support text
Align text to the left and keep a consistent layout
Consider producing material in other formats (for example audio or video)
Keep content short, clear and simple
Let users change the contrast between background and text


Use large blocks of heavy text
Underline words, use italics or write in capitals
Force users to remember things from previous pages – give reminders and prompts
Rely on accurate spelling – use autocorrect or provide suggestions
Put too much information in one place
