Ordbuddy is a browser extension that aims to improve the reading experience for dyslexic users.
Nowadays, we can easily find all information online, although web accessibility is required by the law when designing websites, it will take some time until all the websites are accessible.
To solve this problem, we prototyped a plugin so that users can change whatever font or color they feel most comfortable when reading on the screen.
Unlike other products that users always need to carry something extra, for example, wearing a dyslexic glasses or using an audio pen, that would cause discomfort in the public.
With the browser extension (plugin), users can silently enjoy the better reading experience in the public without feeling embarrassed.
