The above website is experimental It helps adults with decoding problems read faster, but has no impact on dyslexic adults. Fluent readers reject it, this includes teachers.
.
I believe this resource has applications in remedial reading and as a dyslexia screening tool. I would like to know how well it works on kids, (10 years old and up). This would make a good research project for anyone pursuing an advanced degree!

Ann Coffeen Turner did a similar project in 1985 as her Master's Thesis. Sara J. Hines verified Ann's research for a PHD a couple of years ago. Mark D. Goodman wrote the first paper on this subject, a comparison of letter recognition for black and colored letters.
