All this week we’re looking at accessibility and how technology is helping people with disabilities approach their lives in new ways. Today’s installment starts with an anomaly: a Harvard professor who doesn’t like to read — at least not until recently.
Dr. Matt Schneps is an astrophysicist who suffers from dyslexia, and he’s published a study this summer with some surprising findings. It turns out that reading on a computer screen — even a tiny one — might actually help people like Schneps with speed and focus.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
