How do employees benefit from literacy software for dyslexia?

Dyslexic minds often process information visually and with originality.  To their team members, people with dyslexia are often known as the problem-solvers. They might also be known for their ability to look at tasks with a full and creative approach. And be known for being detailed verbal communicators. But for many, the digital workplace creates barriers to their success.

In our modern workspace, we mostly connect with one another in the written format. And there’s an ever-increasing demand for accurate and speedy work. As employees with dyslexia navigate this environment, it’s not without its stresses. Literacy software for dyslexia supports an inclusive workplace. And helps to level the playing field. So every employee is given the chance to succeed in their career.

Meet Colin, user of assistive technology

"Colin is intelligent, but doesn't show it on paper." 

That’s the phrase that’s given in most of the feedback from Colin’s school days. And unfortunately, it’s a phrase with which many people with dyslexia can relate. However throughout his career, Colin has thrived. Reflecting on his success, Colin says; “Texthelp Read&Write has been a large part of me making my promotions to where I am today.”

Explaining how the software benefits him, Colin explains, “I have strategies to deal with my dyslexia. And one of the most important ones is Texthelp Read&Write. It helps me when I'm drafting any work-related papers. It picks up spelling mistakes, homophones, all the things that dyslexics have problems with. I've been using it for about 20 years.”

Read&Write for Work offers essential tools to support...

Speedy processing

Many individuals with dyslexia process information best when it's audible. Text-to-speech allows them to decode text in their preferred way. Helping them to take in information much quicker. And proofread their work much faster.

Read&Write for Work offers text-to-speech across any platform or device. And supports easy listening on the go.

Improved focus

Individuals with dyslexia might find it difficult to focus. Read&Write provides a screen masking feature that helps to focus the users attention on content they want to read.

 It helps to remove what many dyslexics describe as ‘distorted and moving text’. This makes it easier to interpret, and supports employees to finish tasks.

Quick response

In the workplace, urgent matters creep up. Employees need to be able to react quickly, and with accuracy. Diction gives employees a different choice of input. Employees simply speak their thoughts and watch as the words appear on screen.

This helps those with dyslexia to get their thoughts down, without worry over the mechanics of spelling. Helping them to respond much faster without feeling overwhelmed.

“When reading an excel document, the text and numbers used to dance all over my screen. The moment I added the screen masking feature, using the pink and blue overlays, the excel sheet ironed itself out. I could read it seamlessly.”

Read&Write for Work offers a thoughtful adjustment. It supports inclusivity and helps to remove dyslexia discrimination

Employees with dyslexia may have their own ways of coping. But literacy software for dyslexia gives an extra level of support.

Offering Read&Write for Work shows your commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion. And protects your organisation from dyslexia discrimination. It also makes sure support is there for those that may not have told you about their disability. Or who may not know they have dyslexia.

A workplace culture that embraces diversity supports personal achievement and organisational success.

Helping employees to achieve and succeed. And helping organisations to make the workplace somewhere where great things happen - for everyone.
