Has anyone else noticed a trend in people with disabilities using ereaders? My husband is dyslexic and he's read more books in the 2 years since he bought a kindle than he read in the 42 years prior. Using a big font size and making the background black and the text white makes reading much easier for him. My sister used to be a voracious reader but slowed way down after she became visually impaired because of diabetes. The iPad has literally transformed her reading life - something about the backlit screen, paper color and text size enables her to read without headaches.

I think that being able to resize all of the text and the like is a huge advantage. My eyes are still half decent and yet I still see some print books that I don't want to read because of the font style and size.

Also text to speech will be great for a lot of people as well. Previously they needed to buy special things to do that with. I almost want to get my grandma one.
