Because we believe in making learning as accessible as possible, the Snapplify Reader app offers accessibility features, including a specialised font to aid dyslexic readers. This typeface is called OpenDyslexic and has been designed to help with some common reading errors related to Dyslexia.


You can only change the font in a reflowable ePUB, not fixed-layout ePUB or a PDF file.


To enable the OpenDyslexic font in the Snapplify Reader app, follow the instructions for your specific device:


iOS, Android and Chromebook

  2. Next, tap on the icon illustrated as 'aA'.

  3. A menu opens. From here, tap the button in the font selection section to open the list of font options. This button could be set to 'Default' or a specific font name.
