A Fascinating Interactive Blog Post That Shows What It Can Be Like Reading With Dyslexia


In an effort to understand what his friend with dyslexia sees, programmer Victor Widell attempted to recreate her visual effects in a fascinating interactive blog post that used JavaScript to make the letters of each word constantly rearrange themselves.

A friend who has dyslexia described to me how she experiences reading. She can read, but it takes a lot of concentration, and the letters seems to “jump around”. I remembered reading about typoglycemia. Wouldn’t it be possible to do it interactively on a website with Javascript? Sure it would.
