Website describes challenges faced by dyslexic people
July 3, 2016
Dyslexia is a common reading disability. But most of us do not understand the challenges faced by dyslexic individuals to read and interpret written matter.
Now, a website lets us view the alphabet through the eyes of a dyslexic individual. Developed by Victor Widell, it helps us understand how dyslexia interferes with reading and writing and also empathize with those affected by the disability.
Dyslexia has nothing to do with intellect. Affected individuals only see letters jumping around and have to invest a lot of effort and time to read. The website describes how a dyslexic friend of Widell described her experiences of reading, followed by a paragraph on what dyslexia entails.
