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

Works a treat. Couldn't get dyslexie.com 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.
