Noah Text is a specialized text font designed to help new readers, struggling readers, and those with dyslexia. The special text design increases both reading fluency and reading speed, allowing individuals to have a more relaxed reading experience. At the same time, it enhances reading skill. Noah Text also helps English language learners, those individuals striving to get ahead, and those “good enough” readers that avoid reading at all costs. The website presents samples from a chapter book and an early reader, as well as a video demonstrating how the text works.
