Books for people with dyslexia

January 15, 2024

Penguin books have made a world-first attempt by a publisher to create books suitable for people with dyslexia. 10% of the population, meaning 800 million people in the world are affected by Dyslexia. It affects everyone differently. The most common problems people encounter while reading are serif fonts, small font sizes, tightly packed words or sentences and page colours.

No-one should be made to live without a world of books so thankfully Penguin have opened up their whole collection of classics to RMIT University who, after much research, recommended a customisable book system to solve the issue.

The Penguin online shop now allows users with dyslexia to choose a book from their library, select a font, font size, suitable spacing and their preferred page colour in order to enable and enhance their reading experience.
