iPad mini, Nexus 7, or Kindle Fire HDX: Which Tablet is Best for People with Dyslexia?

Frequently reviews of iPads, Tablets, smart phones and other technology, focus on on battery life, pixel density, and processor speed, and the latest “gee-whiz” feature  update.

Brian Meersma at the Assistive Technology Blog went one step further in his review of three of the most popular tablets – the iPad mini, the Nexus 7, and the Kindle Fire HXD.  He opted to take  a look at the features that would help people with dyslexia and other disabilities. All three tablets have some features that are perfect for dyslexics.

His review is thoughtful, practical   and provides more than just an overview.  He discusses the following elements: design, operating system, reading features and several other helpful features.

If you are considering purchasing a tablet for your assistive technology services or working with a student with dislexia, Brian’s review, although lengthy, is well worth the read.
