Specific Learning Differences (including Dyslexia)
The option to use a different font, being able to change background colours and plenty of white space with clear navigation are all helpful features. Synthetic speech output for text reading may be a used by some, so the ability to highlight text and send it to the clipboard could be essential for some text-to-speech applications. Being able to zoom text and not lose the shape of the page is also helpful. Further advice from the BDA Dyslexia Style Guide.
