Don’t Let Dyslexia Hold You Back, Introducing Dyslex.ie
Updated: Sep 7
Dyslexia can make the simple things difficult. We read all day, every day; Tweets and text messages, memes and emails, articles and news stories. Increasingly, the reading we do is online, on screens in our pocket and on our desktop. Most people take their access to this information for granted and the privilege of being able to read it without difficulty is something that people suffering from dyslexia won’t understand.
Do you find it difficult to focus on a single line of text? Do characters mix themselves up constantly? Do you struggle to tell the difference between your ‘p’s and ‘q’s, ‘d’s and ‘b’s? If so, then you understand the struggle of living in an online world while suffering from dyslexia. But it doesn’t have to be this way; introducing, Dyslex.ie.
Dyslex.ie offers a Chrome browser plug-in that adapts any web-page on the internet to be more accessible and easily readable by anyone with dyslexia. After downloading, users complete an online questionnaire, which identifies the types of errors they are prone to making, and the innovative technology suggests the exact modifications needed to compensate for them.
With this data, the software automatically customises the presentation of any website visited, in a style unique to the needs of the individual user. Dyslex.ie customises the background colour, line-spacing, font style and size to enhance users’ reading experience. It also offers syllable-splitting, word-to-image functionality, and paragraph delineation.
The result: our users read better, faster and more efficiently by using the Dsylex.ie software.
Don’t let dyslexia hold you back, at school, university, or at work: Dyslex.ie levels the playing field, and helps the dyslexic community compete fairly with everyone.
