Design for dyslexics


I am in the process of putting a college prospectus together and want to avoid using 100% black text on a white background. Each page has a different colour theme on it, but I want to use a consistent off white colour for the background on each page.

Has anyone got any suggestions as to which colour may work well as an off white?

Best wishes

Not diagnosed as dyslexic but I really struggle with literacy so maybe I am or maybe I was just lazy as a kid...

... As said above people find different colours beneficial so maybe try and cover a wide range of pastel tones with some level of organisation. (ie; each department or course having it's own colour or arrange the colours so when flicked through, they create a smooth transition through the rainbow?) Thant way, it works for everyone and looks pretty too. :thumb:
