Color Aids & Dyslexia
Color & Text Reading Assistance Aids
Changing the font size, type or background color can help many people with dyslexia. Dyslexic individuals often read better with different colored backgrounds or larger fonts. In this section, we recommend many options in regards to color and/or text. The software program ClaroView will turn your documents, web pages and many other graphics on your computer any tint or color you choose. Dyslexia Glasses are special color tinted glasses which can make it easier to read any material, anytime and anywhere. For reading printed documents or books, a colored clear overlay is a good option. If keeping track of the line in which you are reading is a problem, then check out Irlen Magnifying Bars or VTM Line Reader. If you are interested in researching a text to speech writing program with a changeable color background, take a look at Natural Reader or Confident Reader. Another great option is the Optim-Eyes 2 Reading Lamp that can adjust color, which can make reading a more enjoyable experience.

http://www.dyslexic.com Some people find that color makes a big difference to their reading comfort. Until now, the only solutions were colored overlays for the page or wearing tinted glasses. The Optim-Eyes Lamp offers an innovative new approach. It is easily adjustable to the preferred color of different users, and will suit people whose color preference changes over time.
Developed in association with optician Ian Jordan, an internationally renowned expert in visual processing disorders, the Optim-Eyes Lamp helps to overcome problems associated with visual dyslexia, photosensitive epilepsy and migraine. It is well established that the color of ambient lighting can exacerbate the effects of dyslexia.
The Optim-Eyes lamp, however, is uniquely customizable, allowing the color of ambient lighting to be ‘fine-tuned’ to suit each user. It comprises a cluster of 60 LEDs, twenty of each primary color.
