Thanks to Pottermore’s latest release, now everyone can read their favorite books from Hogwarts Library. The company announced on Wednesday that Bloomsbury will be publishing dyslexia-friendly versions of three Harry Potter titles: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
According to Bloomsbury’s website, “Features to aid accessibility include [Royal National Institute of Blind People]-approved and dyslexia-friendly fonts and font sizes, tinted paper for glare reduction and maximum contrast, captions and detailed descriptions to accompany each illustration and themed navigational aids to assist the reader.”
The books, which have also been approved by the British Dyslexia Association, are currently only available in the U.K. And while there’s no news of whether an American line will be released, Bloomsbury did hint that dyslexia-friendly versions of the original Harry Potter series could be coming soon.
After all, author J.K. Rowling, while not dyslexic herself, has long supported U.K. charity Dyslexia Action, which is dedicated to helping people who have the learning disability.
People are loving the news on social, as many parents note that they’ll be buying the books for their own kids who have dyslexia. One user wrote, “Thank you so much for making these a reality. Opening up your magical world to struggling readers makes our world better.”
Another said, “From a dyslexic person, a teacher and a Harry Potter lover, thank you @bloomsburypublishing. It’s a wonderful thing to know that the children I teach will have an easier and better relationship with books and reading than I had as a child.”
