Abstract
Dyslexia is a cross-cultural complex learning disability that mainly affects the visual structure region of the human brain. The main characteristic is quite distinctive such as seeing words as if they seem doubled, overlapped, irregular, moved, danced, faded, swirled, and even bounced or jumped out of the page which is termed as visual-perceptual distortion. Since 1887, some researchers have tried to discover the most beneficial methods to accommodate people with dyslexia in spelling and reading. In response to this, British Dyslexia Association published Dyslexia Style Guides in 2018, which aimed to ensure that written material considers the difficulties experienced by individuals with dyslexia who estimated around 10% in the world. This was also echoed in Indonesia as the fourth South-east Asian countries based on disability prevalence, where approximately 1 out of 5 people sustained linguistic or learning difficulties. This research was addressed to analyse the BDA Dyslexia Style Guides and perceive its effectiveness through a comparative study with other past research.
