Lexia is a website dedicated to helping those with dyslexia. By taking a realistic look at dyslexia, the site focuses on several key overlooked areas that hold potential to help dyslexic individuals. This site features in-depth solutions from actual dyslexics, a Twitter feed, and a mentorship program intended to bolster self-esteem and enhance coping skills. At Lexia, new media has been coupled with traditional media to create a fresh and interesting information-sharing community for dyslexics.
Lexia's mobile component is the app, intended to serve as a dyslexic's personal tool kit. In the app, dyslexics will find a series of tools to help them navigate the world, including a photo-based tip calculator, spell checker and Jumbler. Jumbler uses existing technology to mimic the effects of dyslexia. When reading, dyslexic's minds will unconsciously move letters out of place, making reading challenging. Jumber uses the camera in your phone or tablet to pre-jumble letters and words to match a dyslexic individual's unique way of seeing, making reading easier. Whether on the world wide web or through our mobile app, Lexia will have you seeing the world in a whole new way.
