Read Easy - Research From the Smithsonian Institution Laboratory for Visual Learning

Read Easy - Research From the Smithsonian Institution Laboratory for Visual Learning | Dyslexia | Scoop.it

Research From the Smithsonian Institution Laboratory for Visual Learning. People with dyslexia, who ordinarily struggle to read, sometimes remark that reading is easier when e-readers are used. Here, we used eye tracking to observe high school students with dyslexia as they read using these devices. Among the factors investigated, we found that reading using a small device resulted in substantial benefits, improving reading speeds by 27%, reducing the number of fixations by 11%, and importantly, reducing the number of regressive saccades by more than a factor of 2, with no cost to comprehension
