This works and it makes everything so much easier to read! Thank you so much and i will keep posted if i do run into any issues!

Works a treat. Couldn't get to work. This is brill!

This is a great little extension, lightweight and non intrusive. With dyslexia its reading that's an issue, not the underlying intelligence. An aid such as this one, can help deliver the world to some who may not otherwise have received it. Great Work.

I'm a dyslexic university student and I'm toying with whether to pay for this every month or not. My issue is that when I want to use it for my written assignments (using google doc) the writing goes off the document and so I can only read the first 2/3rds of every line... Is there any way of changing this? If not, I'll keep my money and struggle on, I guess. Other than that, this extension seems amazing so if that doesn't bother you, I say go ahead and get it!
