Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
openWeb is designed to help users who are challenged by dyslexia focus on text-based web content. Using specially crafted fonts, this app can help users who have trouble distinguishing or decoding different letters, users who are overwhelmed by large amounts of text on a single page, or users who sometimes find the ordering or orientation of letters becomes altered while reading. The OpenDyslexic font utilized by openWeb, places emphasis on the bottom of letters, helping users to easily distinguish and identify individual letters and their orientation. Additionally, the app also alternates between light and dark backgrounds to accentuate individual paragraphs, making webpages appear more organized and less cluttered. openWeb's features help users with dyslexia concentrate on the content of text, staying focused on information rather than font or textual clutter.
Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.
Similar to other mobile browsers, openWeb contains features to help users stay organized on the web. Users can utilize the "bookmark" feature to save, keep track of, and organize important or favorite webpages. Users can capitalize on this feature while working on research projects or other assignments in which maintaining a list of resources is critical. openWeb's paragraph shading feature also helps keep webpages appear more organized, giving users visual differentiation between individual search results, links, or paragraphs.
Users of openWeb can practice their reading skills while browsing personally interesting webpages. The unique features of this app help users who struggle with reading because of symptoms of dyslexia distinguish between letters and paragraphs. Users can become more proficient in their reading skill by browsing Wikipedia for interesting articles, or reading the daily news. The more practice dyslexic users have, the more confident and proficient their reading can become.
