Eye Level Reading Rulers were created by Crossbow Education for visual stress sufferers to combine page tinting with tracking support. They are convenient and unobtrusive, and preferred by most children to full page coloured overlays. Research from Birkbeck College (London University) showed that they can increase reading speed by up to 32%.
Duo window reading rulers are divided into a narrow reading window by an opaque strip. The narrow window will take one line of big text and two of small text. It can be trimmed if necessary. Early readers often find it useful as the focus is confined (removing extra distracting text). People who have difficulties keeping their focus on the line being read also find this design useful. Focus can be further confined by taping paper over the wide transparent window a quarter of an inch below the opaque part of the ruler, so that all words except the present line are completely blocked out. The rulers can be trimmed to fit in books or even cut in half to keep in a small dictionary.
To find out if reading through colour is going to help you:
Test read by laying them side by side in turn on a piece of text, and if the text seems clearer or reading is more comfortable with one of them, choose that one to read with. About 25% of people find that tinting the page background makes a difference to their reading
The ruled line underlines the text and assists tracking (preventing losing the place when reading or copying) and combines the glare reduction benefit of reading through a coloured overlay
New wider design, handy pocket size or leave in book as a page marker.
Place over text… and read
Gloss or matt surface
