Explain?


#3

On the app, there are multiple reading color preferences.


I used to be tan, but now it doesn’t matter xD


#4

I didn’t know that. I’ll be back to answer next update.


#5

You forgot option ‘No color. I’m a web user’ :sob:


#6

Black for sure.


#7

My tablet has this neat app setting that adjusts the colours and brightness to be really comfy in the white setting. So white all the way!


#8

Any setting other than black hurts my eyes tbh.

This would be me too LOL I said it before, I’ll say it again, I didn’t realize how badly I needed a dark theme on Wattpad until these clubs. And I’m not just talking for reading, i want a dark theme for the whole enchilada :laughing: This has helped me so damn much it’s incredible. Nothing will take away the marching ants I get around letters, but it’s eased up everything else and it has been glorious


#10

did you know there’s different fonts, too?


#11

Not on the web there isn’t :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: But that isn’t an issue for me since Wattpad already uses a sans-serif font and that’s what I need. Serif and cursive fonts are where I have issues. Times New Roman being the industry standard absolutely kills me :laughing: About the only thing I might need from Wattpad on the font front is something a bit thicker. Some of the lines get a little lost.

However, it would still be nice to have that option on the web. Right now reading on the web version of Wattpad is probably a dyslexics worst nightmare. My dyslexia is mild compared to others, but if I struggle with it I can’t imagine how somebody with a far more severe case does.

Aesthetically I like darker schemes, but for my own reading purposes, I choose dark text on a light background and then use the blue light filters on my devices. If a device doesn’t have its own filter then going with a sepia/tan scheme has a similar effect.

(If we were talking video, I like the ‘theater’ mode that darkens/greys-out the surrounding screen a bit.)

Also, I tend to use read-aloud or narration when it’s available on my device/app in conjunction with reading the text. It helps me concentrate using multiple sense. Sometimes, I listen only, and that’s a different experience. I find it helps me to ‘hear’ errors that weren’t apparent when I visually scanned the text.

(And for video I use the closed captions if available.)


#13

I like it on the app. I think it’s bigger than whatever font type you use, I think.

I mentioned dark theme as kind of a simplification. When I’m writing, what I really go for is “Terminal Theme”. By this, I mean classic Linux Mint terminal. I’ve found going back to GUI formats … kind of a strange sensation.

It’s a bit like a little sister pulling on your hair and bopping your nose. Cute, even pleasant at first. Then it starts burning like a Minecraft nether.

I like terminals for a different reason most programmers do, as I find both GUI and Terminal easy to use. It’s that color I like in terminals.


#15

Black, so I can read at night.


#16

Yeah that’s the reason i read in black too!:joy::joy:


#17

Black, definitely. I wish it was available on the web :sob::sob::sob::sob: please wattpad I’m begging you. :disappointed_relieved:


#18

I’m fine with the how the site is now, but a dark theme for reading would be great.
