OverDrive/Libby E-books Are Available in a Dyslexia-Friendly Font

Standard typefaces are often difficult to read for people with dyslexia as the letters are hard to differentiate and words tend to jumble together. Dyslexic fonts provide greater contrast in letters which solves this problem.

OverDrive and the Libby app feature a dyslexic font option that is designed to make text easier to read for readers with dyslexia. You can enable or disable this option using these steps:

On the library's OverDrive website:

Log in to your account and go to your settings.

Under Display Options, select "Dyslexic font".

 

Reading in a web browser:

Open an e-book in your browser using OverDrive Read.

Open the OverDrive Read menu (click or tap the middle of the screen to bring up the menu icon).

Select Reading Settings.

Select OpenDyslexic under "Book Design."

 

Reading in the Libby App

Open an e-book in the Libby app.

Open the Libby menu (click or tap the middle of the screen to bring up the menu icon).

Select Reading Settings.

Select OpenDyslexic under "Book Design."
