Crossbow A4 Coloured Overlays

As low as £3.40
In stock

The latest range of lower cost A4-size transparent overlays, now expanded to 11 colours to give the broad choice recommended by experts. These A4 overlays are ideal for reading larger texts, sheet music, etc.

The overlays have a shiny side and a matt side to provide improved usability over a range of lighting conditions. Reading from the shiny side gives a subjectively crisper appearance to the underlying text, but can reflect overhead lighting. The matt side trades slightly decreased clarity for less reflection.

*Please note the colours shown in the pictures may not be an exact representation of the colour in real life.

Coloured overlays in a range of at least ten colours are a proven, research-based solution to the visual stress problems that often occur alongside dyslexia.

Really simple to use; just remove from packaging, peel off the protective coating, place over text and read.

One side of the overlay has a matt coating. Some matt coatings can reduce transparency, but coloured overlays from Crossbow Education have been subjected to stringent testing to ensure that maximum print clarity is retained while reflected light from the overlay surface has been significantly reduced. Nevertheless, some people prefer using the gloss side of the overlay.

It is helpful to assess for optimum colour first using our Visual Stress Assessment Pack, as different people find different colours work best for them.

Available individually, as packs of 5 or packs of 10, in single or mixed colours.  Each overlay has rounded corners and measures 216 x 298 mm.

Crossbow Education Ltd coloured overlays are proven in peer-reviewed research,  are made of the clearest, scratch-resistant highest quality recyclable plastic, and have been the choice since 2006 for people with reading difficulties caused by visual stress or dyslexia.
