"...This article provides some suggestions for specific areas of need that some users with dyslexic difficulties encounter. For simplicity, and to prevent overwhelming users, we have intentionally restricted the number in each section as a starting point for ideas rather than presenting lengthy lists. Other useful websites have been included at the end to help you investigate further.

It is important to note that Apps are only byte-size portions of software compared to those you may use on a computer or laptop. It is unlikely that you will find everything you need in just one. However, a small collection that you can work between may provide a convenient and adequate mobile working environment.

Please note that although updating the operating system on older devices will introduce some new features, the functionality of some Apps may be affected by the age and speed of your device...."
