Enhancing online readability with BeeLine Reader
Project Literacy Lab venture improves reading experience for users
BeeLine Reader is one of the ventures that was selected to attend the Project Literacy Lab in 2017. The Lab accelerator is designed to highlight ground-breaking technologies and entrepreneurs working towards closing the global literacy gap.
BeeLine’s innovative technology improves the online reading experience and skill levels for students of all ages by displaying text using a subtle color gradient, which wraps from the end of one line to the beginning of the next. The technology helps readers track online text more easily, enabling a higher degree of reading comprehension and understanding among all students including those with dyslexia, ADHD and other learning challenges.
The technology is already being used on over 250 million pages, making websites stickier and content more accessible. Literacy organizations, including Bookshare and Reading Is Fundamental have embedded BeeLine into their websites, and most recently, Project Literacy Lab partner Unreasonable Group made it available on their newly launched website.
