About this app

TintVision is a free app intended to improve user experience for people, primarily with dyslexia, and other vision impairments by providing a colour overlay and draggable underliner tool. Unlike other apps which allow you to overlay the screen with a coloured filter, TintVision is designed with accessibility in mind.

The user interface has been specifically created to make it as easy as possible for dyslexic users to navigate and use, making use of a high constrast colour scheme and "dyslexic friendly font" (OpenDyslexic 3).

TintVision was created after thorough research for a final year University project and is subject to continual updates.

PLEASE MAKE THIS APP AVAILABLE FOR iPhones. This app is wonderful for people recovering from concussions who have light sensitivity and eye strain with screens. It enables you to choose the color, transparency of the color, and the size of the colored overlay on your device screen. It also provides a line to help keep your place with reading. However, I have two suggestions - the line needs to be easier to place/move on the page and PLEASE MAKE THIS APP AVAILABLE FOR iPhones. There is nothing like it for apple users and people really need it!

nice idea, but in practice I could not select any colour overlay except yellow. the underliner works to some extent when I got the hang of it, but the length of it is limited, and the default starting position set to the left side of the screen, and it's jumpy and slow to move to other positions. the phone accessibility settings has an overlay option, but I was hoping to be able to define both the colour and opacity better using this app.

Fantastic app. Can sometimes just turn off. However generally reliable and incredibly useful for making reading on my phone easier. I'm amazed that this function isn't built into Android. The app would be improved if there was a way of only having the tint working in certain apps. For example whilst reading email it is excellent, however when looking at photographs I need to turn tint off.
