App adapts written texts for dyslectics

Dyslexia: News from the web:

A website has been developed in France that can adapt written texts to the needs of dyslexic children. The website, which was the result of intuition from the social start-up Aidodys, allows the user to load pages of reading, exercises and lessons in various digital formats and generate the same documents in readable versions for those who suffer from dyslexia, dysphasia or dyspraxia. This helps young users to distinguish the spaces between words, to tell capital letters from lower case as well as different punctuation marks. Intended for parents, teachers and medical professionals, the website allows you to customise the results based on the needs of each user.
