Demographic data from the three Read-Right user groups: patients with right hemianopic alexia (R-HA), left hemianopic alexia (L-HA) and controls without hemianopia (control). Mean age and reading speed (wpm=words per minute) are reported with SDs in curved brackets. Measures of the time taken from baseline (BL) to completion of 5 h of Read-Right therapy (5 h), and the time from ictus to BL, had non-parametric distributions and therefore are reported using medians (in italics) with associated IQR in square brackets. Results from the self-report questions “Has Read-Right helped your reading” and “Compared to before starting Read-Right, every day I am reading [X] time more or less” are also presented.
