Augmenta11y: The Augmented Reality powered smartphone app for the cognitively disabled
Augmenta11y is a virtual assistant serving as an aid for those living with dyslexia. It has been carefully designed and developed in such a way that makes it easy to use for people of all ages.
It is a one-stop platform that aims at making life easier on a regular basis, simplifying the process of interacting with objects and text-based data (such as billboards, street signs, hard copy documents, online data) that one may encounter with through the course of their day.
Augmenta11y helps the dyslexic absorb and interact with reading material with comfort. It provides a vast array of customisable options, rendering the text to be completely user-customisable based on their preferences. Augmenta11y serves as the ultimate assistant while dealing with the effects of a condition such as dyslexia.
Augmenta11y aims at helping the cognitively disabled be more independent, by ensuring ease of accessibility and usability. The application is fairly intuitive to use, simply point your device at the object at hand and let Augmenta11y work its magic.
Allow Augmenta11y to assist you as follows:
Font-size, font-style, text colour, line-height ratio, text to background contrast and letter spacing are the few initial options provided. Find the combination of such adjustments that are tailored to aid you to consume real world data better.
To better understand the text at hand, Augmenta11y will assist you by reading the rendered data out loud to you!
Augmenta11y will keep a close tab on all data encountered by you for future reference, allowing you to revisit it whenever required.
