Abstract [en]

The! work! presented! in! this! report! represents! an! attempt! at! creating! an! alternative!

reading! method! for! dyslexics! based! on! RSVP! (Rapid! Serial! Visual! Presentation).! An!

introduction! to! chosen! parts! of! previous! research! on! dyslexia! and! reading! is! given! to!

bridge!into!what!we’ve!chosen!to!call!

SSR!C!SelfCpaced,!Serial!Reading.!Broadly!speaking,!

SSR! represents! the! features!we! think! are! important! in! a!version! of!RSVP! intended! for!

dyslexics.!The!features!are!based!on!the!fact!that!RSVP!limits!the!amount!of!text!shown!

at! any! given! time.!We! believe! this! could! help!with! certain! underlying! parts! dyslexics!

suffer!from.!

!

We!present!the!development!of!a!prototype!app!as!a!possible!interpretation!of!SSR.!To!

evaluate! the! prototype,! five! dyslexics! participated! in! a! prepared! test! as! well! as! a!

subsequent! interview.! The! main! purpose! was! to! test! if! the! method! worked! at! all,!

including!why!or!why!not,!and!what!the!testers!thought.!

!

The!results!indicate!that!a!version!of!RSVP!that!limits!the!shown!text!to!a!single!word!

makes! it! somewhat! easier! for! dyslexics! to! focus! on! decoding! the! word,! but! that! it!

becomes!harder!for!them!to!place!the!word!in!the!right!context.!They!also!illustrate!the!

difficulty!in!deciding!for!how!long!different!parts!of!the!text!should!be!shown.!Finally!we!

suggest!possible!subjects!that!could!be!analyzed!in!the!future!in!order!to!decide!if!this!
