Android Apps for Learners with Dyslexia


A3 sized PDF poster - revision 1.4, published 2019


After we produced our wheel of iPad Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties, we received regular requests for a similar wheel for tablets and smartphones that use the Android operating system. IPads are used much more frequently than Android devices in schools, but over the past few years some schools have started to allow the use of Android tablets and many parents have been buying them for home use. More educational apps are now available for Android tablets and smartphones. Android apps can also be used on some Chromebooks.

The first version of our Android Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties was created in October 2015. It has been updated regularly since then. Over the past four years it has been downloaded over 10,000 times.

The latest version (1.4) keeps the same broad categories as previous versions, but the following apps have been removed, either because they are no longer available for Android devices, or because other apps proved significantly more useful for people with reading and writing difficulties: Read Me Stories, Easy Text to Speech, KNFB Reader, Dictus and Swype. Six apps have been added: Google Text to Speech, ClaroSpeak, Envision AI, Eye Games Dyslexia, Easy Dyslexia and Dysgraphia Aid, and Mindly. Icons and links for other apps have been updated, as required.
