TechCrunch viewed with Dyslite
Dyslite for OpenDyslexic converts the font on all web pages to OpenDyslexic, an open-source font type that many people with dyslexia have found easier to read than traditional typefaces (but you already know that!)
Dyslite was designed to be a very light plugin so that it would not interfere with the load times on web pages. Once you have the Dyslite plugin installed and enabled, text on webpages loaded by your web browser are automatically and instantly converted into your dyslexia-optimized web font of choice (we currently offer OpenDyslexic, Mono Dyslexic, and Gill Dyslexic). Just install it once you’ll never have to worry about it again. But it’ll always be behind the scenes, working to help you read faster and more efficiently.
You can learn more about the Dyslite plugin and supported font types at http://dyslite.com.

Academic Apps For Kids have recently launched our first two apps: Learn Words 1 and Learn Words 2, available on the AppStore for iPad and iPhone. Both apps teach young children to read 40 words using pictures and targeted multiple choice. Our aim is to make learning fun without trying to distract with loud and flashy songs and animations. We promise a quiet and safe learning experience, so no advertisements or in-app purchases. All apps are available at the lowest price point and have a discount for educational institutions.
We are proud to have included an option to use the OpenDyslexic font and fully support all the great work that Abelardo Gonzalez is doing. We hope to release many more apps in the future and they will all feature OpenDyslexic.

MediaWiki added a Universal Language Selector that included OpenDyslexic late last year, and now it has become a part of Wikipedia. Now anyone using Wikipedia can switch to reading the articles in OpenDyslexic easily, without needing to install anything on their computer.
