“Fantastic Beasts” Screenplay Now Available in Dyslexic Readers’ Format

W F Howes Ltd, a UK publishing house, has released an accessible large-print version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay.

The specialist edition is the second title published in the dyslexic-friendly format, following Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Both accessible large-print editions were formatted according to guidelines based on research from the British Dyslexia Association and the University of South Wales and are available for purchase now from Amazon.co.uk and for libraries through the W.F. Howes website.

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!
