Hi everyone,
We made a huge effort and collected, clustered, and compared different applications for dyslexia for intervention but also for assisted Reading or Writing. We present the result in our chapter "Technologies for Dyslexia" available in the book Web Accessibility.
Our chapter includes past, current, and future research technologies to support, intervene, or detect people with dyslexia! 

The other chapters are also a great resource on Web Accessibility! If you are looking for details or a starting point for your research as well as detailed information on a specific topic like "Mathematics and Statistics", "Multimedia Accessibility", "Wearables", "Mobile Web“... It is your book about recent Web Accessibility development.
Thanks to my co-authors Ricardo Baeza-Yates and Private Profile
as well as the editors Yeliz Yesilada and Simon Harper
and do not forget to check out the other chapters !!!

Nowadays, being excluded from the web is a huge disadvantage. People with dyslexia have, despite their general intelligence, difficulties for reading and writing through their whole life. Therefore, web technologies can help people with dyslexia to improve their reading and writing experience on the web. This chapter introduces the main technologies and many examples of tools that support a person with dyslexia in processing information on the web, either in assistive applications for reading and writing as well as using web applications/games for dyslexia screening and intervention.

In this paper we present a language resource for German, composed of a list of 1,021 unique errors extracted from a collection of texts written by people with dyslexia. The errors were annotated with a set of linguistic characteristics as well as visual and phonetic features. We present the compilation and the annotation criteria for the different types of dyslexic errors. This language resource has many potential uses since errors written by people with dyslexia reflect their difficulties. For instance, it has already been used to design language exercises to treat dyslexia in German. To the best of our knowledge, this is first resource of this kind in German.
