Abstract

Dyslexia is a universal reading difficulty. Each dyslexic suffers from individual reading problems. Some may not understand what is written, while others may omit, or transpose letters while reading. Most research has treated all dyslexics as a single class, especially in Arabic. Therefore, the aim of this research is to overcome these problems by training dyslexics using learning material that matches their individual needs, in order to improve their reading. To achieve this, an online training system for Arabic dyslexics has been developed and evaluated (in terms of learning gain and learner satisfaction).
