Requirements and needs of dyslexic people in terms of multimedia presentation

The particular needs of dyslexic people are rarely examined in the context of the EU research programmes and the MR project has provided an opportunity to examine some of these issues within this context. Dyslexic people are largely unaware of existing accessibility software, which may provide significant benefits.

FNB gained knowledge about the requirements and needs of dyslexic users and what the relationship between these needs and those of visually impaired readers. FNB will use the results of the evaluations with dyslexic people to improve their services to their clients and to encourage the future development of new products.
