About Us


Dyslexic Books are books specially formatted for people with dyslexia. Our books are printed with a font designed to alleviate some of the difficulties typically reported by readers with dyslexia, such as swapping or flipping letters and skipping lines without noticing. Our books are also formatted to improve the spacing between letters, lines and words, and to improve the overall layout of text on a page.

Dyslexic Books is powered by Read How You Want’s patented and award-winning conversion technology that enables books to be produced on demand in alternative formats quickly and easily.

We currently have representatives working with publishers in Australia and New Zealand, the United States and Canada, and the United Kingdom. Since our books are printed on demand and our electronic formats are delivered on demand, we are able to offer books throughout the world as long as the country is within the book’s copyright.

Dyslexic Books is a subsidiary of Accessible Publishing Systems Pty Ltd (APS). The mission of APS is to develop products and technologies that make reading easier. Other subsidiaries of APS include:

  • Read How You Want (RHYW), whose mission is to provide books in accessible formats for people who struggle with or cannot read standard print editions.

  • Readable English, whose mission is to simplify and accelerate the process of learning to read and to pronounce words in English. Readable English is a new way for people to learn how to read and pronounce words in English. By making English phonetic, without changing the spelling, an instant pronunciation guide is embedded into each word. Emerging readers, struggling readers and English language learners can independently sound out any word without having to learn the complex rules of the English spelling system.
