Special Text Adjustment Features

The Stars and Stripes Tablet edition lets you adjust the size of the article and photo caption text to whatever size is most comfortable to read. Additionally, Stars and Stripes is proud to offer a special font created to help those who have dyslexia. The font uses a unique design that adds "weight" to the bottom of each letter, thought to help dyslexics hold the letters "in place" when reading.
