“The claims seem true because it doesn’t let your eyes wander to different portions of text. Coloring the text in gradients really does guide your eyes. Sometimes, I end up accidentally re-reading the same line of text because I thought I went down to the next line but I just went back to the same line.”
“I’m no expert, but the fading gradient seems to keep my eyes on track. The start of a sentence begins with a solid color that attracts the eye and then it slowly fades off and then fades back in again, making sure that each sentence does not have the same gradient as the one below it. The gradients are alternating. Along with reading in a straight line, you can follow patterns, so you see this gradient of color and your eyes are almost “pre-built” to follow the flow of the color. At least, that is why I think it works”
“I don’t believe in dyslexic fonts. Regular clear cut fonts a fine as long as each letter is distinguishable”
What do you think? Do you find BeeLine Reader useful? Is there a particular color scheme that you found helpful? Is this “better” or “worse” than the fonts aimed at people with dyslexia?
