In this talk, we will present a tablet-based big data multimedia environment, which uses text, audio, video, and gaze movement to detect a set of symptoms of having dyslexia. Multi-modal, language-independent screening test modules have been developed, which gives indications of further dyslexia diagnosis necessity. The multimedia retrieval framework is envisioned to accelerate and ease the process of testing dyslexia at the global level, and to identify and auto assess potential dyslexic patterns and to accumulate huge collection of multimedia test data for in-depth clinical dyslexia pattern analysis.
