Abstract: Very little attention has been paid to the effect disabilities have on the process of information retrieval, particularly those most likely to be effected, namely the print disabled. By print disabled we mean either blind or dyslexic people. While some attention has been paid to the needs of blind people, little or no attention has been paid to the information seeking needs of dyslexic people. The purpose of this proposed study is to examine the effect of dyslexia on information retrieval and ultimately to develop interfaces and tools which will help such users to improve their information seeking experience.
