We know that dyslexia or visual stress can make reading harder and less fun, so here are some of the services we offer that might make reading more accessible.
- Barrington Stoke publish books with dyslexia-friendly fonts, off-white paper and careful spacing between words to help reduce visual stress. Find out which Barrington Stoke books we have on our catalogue here
- Large print books can make reading easier for some people. Find out what large print junior books we have here
- Borrowbox, our eBook and eAudiobook app, has a feature where you can change the font to a dyslexia-friendly version. You can also make the text larger.
- The Encyclopaedia Britannica Online Junior Edition has a read along button at the top of every article that might be useful for research topics.
- We are currently trialling an audio magazine, Fact Factory, where the text is read aloud when you hold a special pen over the words. This is available at City Library.
