I'm a final year college student and am working on an app for dyslexic users. I would be very grateful if any dyslexics would take a moment to answer a few questions, so I can make the app better
Thanks so much!
1. What are
the main symptoms of your dyslexia and how does it present? (Trouble with
reading, spelling, writing, grammar or other specific tasks?
2. How does
being dyslexic effect your everyday life and learning? Has your dyslexia
ever impacted your studies or learning?
3. What age
were you diagnosed with dyslexia and what kind of support (if any) were
4. Do you
have any prior experience with using dyslexia assistive technology? If so,
what type of technology? (coloured overlays for
papers, highlighters, spell checkers, text readers, apps or add-ons that change
font/page contrast, smartpens etc.)
5. Which of
the products you used did you find helpful and unhelpful and why?
6. Do you
feel a need for better assistive technology to help with dyslexia?
