Everyone has their favorite assistive tech tools. For dyslexia, it takes a lot of apps to go through the day. Omoguru is looking to provide an ecosystem of connected apps for dyslexia that make reading easier and improve reading skills.

What Apps For Dyslexia Are Best For You?
We will keep an eye on what else dyslexic students use in their daily education. But we prefer to have the info right from dyslexics that use them daily. We would love the most that ones who know of useful tools that work for them let us know about them. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make another list of apps for dyslexia. You never know who will benefit and help them learn.
Also, any feedback about our own app that helps specific manifestations of dyslexia is really useful to us. That way we can improve and make reading easier for even more dyslexics. Let us know what works and doesn’t work. We are happy to hear from you.
