Popis It is stated that from 5 to 15% of people worldwide, depending on language and statistical reports, suffer from dyslexia, although only some of them are diagnosed. According to [1], people with dyslexia have difficulties to understand written words and sentences in such a way that these difficulties interfere significantly in the accomplishment of common tasks that require reading abilities. The main elements causing dyslexia dwell in visual attention deficit and letter concentration, both based in neural cognition. Considering that study materials are nowadays very much accessible through internet, by accommodating web content to anyhow disabled users must be seen as natural thing. Therefore, the aim of my research is to introduce an application that allows people with dyslexia to decode text content easier and understand it properly.
