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!

About Helperbird

Learn about who built Helperbird and the reason behind it.

Robert James Gabriel

Founder

As a kid that went through reading difficulties in my childhood and growing up, I fully empathise the discomfort, lack of self-confidence and ability to keep up with the standard pace challenges that it can present. After graduating from computer science in Ireland, I set out on a journey to use my skills to research, develop and bring alive a tool that can assist people in reading, speech and colour blindness difficulties. Helper birds vision is to deliver a technology that will provide value and assistance to people with such concerns and create a world where reading adversity is a glimpse of the past.
