A new method of printing to reduce eye strain

image55

Welcome!

  ZigZagText is a printing style where alternate lines of 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. This makes the document easier to read, because your eye does not experience the strain of jumping from the right side of the page all the way back to the left after reading each line. This action also sometimes causes readers, especially young readers, to inadvertently skip lines.

For example, here is the first paragraph from Peter Pan, printed in traditional format :
