Re: [school-discuss] dyslexia and the terminal
If the file to be read is a *.txt file then a browser
which has be configured for large (enough for the
individual user) . . . may help. Applications which use
color to identify parts of speach or function of words
(eg. pronouns, verbs, adjetives, etc.) may help. Use of
professional testing to identify, in measurable terms,
specific needs of the client - is a good starting place.
