Delhi teens create Web tool for dyslexics & vision impaired
August 3, 2016
Two Delhi-based students have developed a web tool that can help people with dyslexia and visual impairments access the Internet.
Anand Chowdhary and Nishant Gadihoke, who are web designers decided to reach out to those living with disabilities and senior citizens who often find it difficult to read on the web.
They have developed a Chrome extension that helps everyone access content on the web.
Their Chrome extension is called Oswald and it gives every user the option to choose an experience according to the disability.
Anand and Nishant went through the research carried out by the British Dyslexia Association to understand how the mind of a person with dyslexia works.
