I was browsing the list of apps but couldn't see my apps there. It is true that my applications are recent, even if the first version of Navidys was released in 2013.
My wife is a speech-language pathologist, and at a conference someone spoke about the lack of mainstream tools to improve reading for people with visual impairments, as well as those with dyslexia. Especially since the number of people increases every year, and in all classes, there are people with dyslexia. So she gave some tips for parents but also for the use of teachers to improve the readability of written documents but which is applicable to websites.
For example, not justifying documents, using sans serif fonts, and increasing the font size and spacing between lines and letters.
Through these aids, the goal is not just to read better, and as the feedback from users, I understood that the goal was to help understanding, by facilitating the ability to quickly decipher the words to extract the meaning of sentences. Allow everyone to find their settings to avoid wasting energy in deciphering letters and words.
So I created:
- Navidys to read websites https://apps.apple.com/app/id1507784155#?platform=iphone
- Scandys to read documents https://apps.apple.com/app/id1512502620#?platform=iphone
These applications are complementary and share the same palette of tools to create your reading profile.
I take this opportunity here to also have your feedback on what works or not for you, and your opinion on these tools.
To test these reading tools, I created an application to try to find its settings and know what works or not, and to know the difficulties of each one : https://apps.apple.com/app/id1559259054
Thanks for reading and I'm here to talk about the topic, I really want to allow people to be able to compensate for these reading issues.
