This Website Simulates What It’s Like To Read With Dyslexia And I’m Proud To Say Taht I Can Sitll Raed It

Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in the world. I know this because it was a trivia question during an old episode of The Office that re-aired on Tuesday night, coincidentally that episode from 2012 was named ‘Trivia’. Moving on, there’s a website that simulates what it is like to read with dyslexia.

Common symptoms of dyslexia include:

Spelling errors
Letter order
Letter addition/subtraction
Highly phoneticized spelling
A small vocabulary (written)

The dyslexia simulator website is designed to bring forth all of those symptoms while you’re reading, and I’m proud to say that I was mostly able to read through the writing prompt without getting a headache (I might have suffered a seizure though). One thing about this website is that in the simulator the text is constantly moving, so even though I’ve grabbed some screenshots for you below you’ll have to follow the link down at the bottom of this post to get the FULL EFFECT of the simulator, and see if you have what it takes to read with dyslexia:

Most of you were probably able to read through that, because studies have found that most humans only need the first and last letter of a word to be in place in order to raed taht wrod, the rset of the ltetres can be all srots of jmbueld around.

Now if you think you have what it takes to read the dyslexia simulator while the page is moving, you can CLICK HERE to head on over to Geon’s Github.
