Does Paper Color Affect Reading for Dyslexics?

Color and Readability (Dyslexia)

Research…is there a way to improve reading skills for teens? Imagine college professors going at it nose-to-nose. Is that the only way to find an answer?  Maybe.

Some professors are from America. The others are British. Here’s how it plays out. 

US yelling, “Black and white has the greatest contrast!” Swish…”It depends on many factors!” Nose-to-nose. Toe-to-toe. Yelling so loud that they’re unintelligible.

What’s the argument? Does the color of print and it’s background color affect successful reading for teens with dyslexia? Who wins the argument?

THE RESULTS

The recent research says that there are many color combinations, which impact readability for the person with dyslexia. It is also dependent upon the quality of print and paper. Computer research allows greater accuracy due to programming and design.

The closest to consensus is black print on yellow background. Next is blue print on white background.

LET THE BATTLE CONTINUE.
