Change the color of the text/font on the page to suit you!

Background color

Studies have shown some background colors help people with dyslexia focus and improve reading. All suggested color included in Helperbird.

Google Docs Support

Google Docs currently doesn't support some fonts like OpenDyslexic. So we built CSS and support for these fonts.

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 dyslexie.com to work. This is brill!

Sue Dowdall

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.
