5 tips to make reading from the computer easy

Reading very long pages on the computer can be very tiring. It feels better to read it after taking a print out. Here is a list of things you can do to make it easier to read it from the computer monitor.

  1. Get the text Read aloud using software, use adobe acrobat reader or other text to speech software’s.
  2. Use a Pre-timed scroll rate. This can take sometime to get adjusted to.
  3. Use a background color that is not very glaring. Grey would be more pleasing than white. The background color can be changed in PDF files also.
  4. Use a translucent screen to cover the monitor that reduces the intensity of light.
  5. Don’t stare at the monitor continuously. By blinking at regular intervals the strain on the eye can be reduced. Take 5-minute breaks while reading.
