6 Cognitive impairments, including dyslexia
6.5 Requirements of dyslexic people
The requirements of dyslexic people for computers and other interactive devices are mostly the same, with perhaps one exception. In general dyslexic people may require the following, depending on their particular needs:
- ability to change colour/font settings
- option of speech output
- option of speech input
- clear, consistent design.
In addition a requirement for computer access may be the inheritance of operating system settings for font and colour, if specific settings are needed.
