Digi-lexic?

I recently discovered that dyslexic readers find it easier to distinguish words if they are printed on yellow paper. I was wondering – is it easier or harder for dyslexic readers to read on-screen?  Is there a difference across type of screen – a desktop monitor as opposed to a hand held device?  Maybe there is no difference. If anyone has any comments I really would be interested.
