The adjustments, including clearer fonts and spacing of words, paragraphs, and pages, may be helpful for people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, brain injury, or stroke.
Dominic White, head of publishing and commerce at W.F. Howes Ltd, said,
We’ve had a huge response to the first ever [d]yslexia format we created for J K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and it is exciting to build on it with the next installment, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Accessibility should be a key consideration in publishing, and this is an example of how we can open up a new and important audience.
We’re thrilled to see these editions released and the new stories told within the Fantastic Beasts series being made available to more fans of the wizarding world than ever before!
