Coloured overlays are a visual stress and dyslexia friendly resource.
Reading through colour can increase reading speed and improve comprehension whilst making reading more enjoyable.
Colored overlays are designed to help alleviate reading disabilities caused by visual processing disorders by emphasizing text and giving an illusion that the text is on a colored background. They work by changing each color’s wavelength, revising how fast signals are sent from the eye to the brain.
