It's the best app for dyslexia I've ever seen! I liked the variety of features and the flexibility it gives, unfortunately I realised for me it was not needed, but I'm glad to see there is such a helpful thing.

Would it be possible to add any darker colors? Particularly dark blue as that is the color that i write and read on and it would be extremely helpful.

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.
