Overdrive App Now Offers Dyslexic Font

The most recent version of the OverDrive app has a number of enhancements including the option to select a dyslexic font when reading eBooks. Standard typefaces are often difficult to read for people with dyslexia as the letters are hard to differentiate and words tend to jumble together. Dyslexic fonts provide greater contrast in letters which solves this problem.

To select the dyslexic font tap the center of your device’s screen when reading a title and choose the font options button. Then simply select which dyslexic font you’d like to use. As always, you can also adjust the spacing, font size and screen color to make your reading experience more enjoyable.
