English Current user interfaces present many different features that assist users in reading and comprehending texts in digital format. Although internal or individual factors, such as visual impairment and dyslexia, can impose serious reading difficulties for technology users, in this study we focus on the solutions designed to alleviate external factors. We analyze popular software systems and identify five user interface design patterns developed to help users understand texts in situations involving text difficulty, unbalanced bilingualism, and low literacy. By providing this incipient pattern collection, we expect to enable interaction designers and accessibility researchers to achieve a better understanding of the topic and possibly propose improvements for the current solutions.
