Zig Zag Text News

Welcome to ZigZagText.com!


This site is going to publish a new children's story each week in the Zig Zag Text format, where alternate lines text in a document are reversed in direction. In the first line, the words go from left to right, and in the second line they go from right to left, and so on. I believe this makes the document easier to read, because your eye does not have to jump from the right side of the page all the way back to the left after reading each line. This printing style seems to be especially helpful for dyslexic readers, who often lose their place in a document.As a side note, it turns out that a variant of the ZigZagText called Boustrophedon was used in antiquity.
