What Users, Dyslexia & EdTech Experts Say About Us?

We welcomed each opportunity we had to talk to dyslexics or education experts to better grasp at the capacity our solution has. Most often the question we asked was to what extent our environment is useful. Here are some of the replies.

Owen Kowalski, The Life Dyslexic

Huge Asset For Digitally Oriented Dyslexics

Being a very paper-based analogue dyslexic reader, I have often struggled with reading books on tablets or kindles. I therefore approached the Omoguru Reader with a mix of skepticism, intrigued and hope that it might make a difference.

First up, I found the app very simple, straightforward and intuitive to use, with a large library of books to choose from.

Once I was finally up and running, I found the reading experience much better than on previous electric readers. My reading speed was always slow to begin with when reading of a screen then off a paper page and using Omoguru certain increased it to be on a par with my paper-based reading speed but did not exceed it.

I would recommend Omoguru to anyone who is struggling with their reading and suggest they give it a try. I am sure a more digitally orientated dyslexic would find it a huge asset to their arsenal. Although personally I still prefer reading my paper books, I am willing to persevere with Omoguru and see where things go.

Well-developed App They Should Use To Support Students

The children continued to use the app for various tasks during the trial. After that, teachers gave overwhelmingly positive feedback. Their Education Psychologist and assistant also felt Omoguru was a well-developed app they should use to support students.

Omoguru improves readability and provides a better visual impact for all readers. Especially those with dyslexia. This app is fantastic and easy to use. It allows you to find the most appropriate appearance that suits the individual user. Importantly, Omoguru offers a serious amount of feature change options as each person with dyslexia are affected in different ways. Doing this is simple and fast.

Omoguru is a great tool for students to have on hand in the classroom as a student can download notes and text straight to the app to read.

You made one boy very happy and made him belive in himself. Thank you!

Rita and Mum, Facebook

Omoguru has made our life so much better. My daughter reads with no breaks, when she gets tired of reading one font she adjusts to what she finds most suitable. Love to see her reading with a smile and no frustrations. Thank you so much!!!!!

My boyfriend is 36 yo, he has dylsexia, dysgraphia and ADHD his whole life. This is the first time he can read books normally and I thank you for that 🙂

Fin loved the app, by the way. Is genuinely excited about it, and tried to use it to read a book this morning while we were asleep. Him wanting to read a book on his own is definitely a first, so thank you!

Levin, Google Play

Payment required for full access unfortunate but understandable. An otherwise fantastic concept.

Ivana Feric, Facebook

Great tool that discovered a world of books to my child. Read easier, she’s less frustrated and has more desire to read (learn)🥰

 

Testing

Julian, 12

How was it customizing the app?

It wasn’t hard to set up once you figured it out.

What tools did you find the most valuable?

I could see! I could actually read! The background and the line spacing were cool.

In what ways did it make reading easier?

That I could really read.

Evie, 11

How did it feel to set up the app?

I thought it was fun. It was pretty straight forward. You just had to press arrows back and forward once you figured out what to do.

Which tools did you find the most valuable?

I liked how I could see each word. And the canvas was good. I liked how you could change the font and set it.

In what ways, if any, did it make reading easier for you?

It made it a lot easier because the black made it pop out more so you could tell what was different. I didn’t feel like I was missing words. It was so much easier with the dots.

Jasper, 11

How did it feel to set up the app?

It felt like you had control over what way you wanted to read the text.

What tools did you find the most valuable?

Spacing between words and lines so you don’t re-read the same words.

In what ways did it make reading easier?

I didn’t lose my place so much.

Jack, 12

How did it feel to set up the app?

It was easy. I got to design it and sometimes the words can be too small on paper. I liked that.

Which tools did you find the most valuable?

I can change the size and spacing between words. I can see the words more clearly.

In what ways did it make reading easier?

I could make things more spaced apart.

Tristan, 10

How did it feel to set up the app?

It was cool because you get to see how you see the text and what makes it easier and harder for you to read.

What tools did you find the most useful?

Then the canvas was good because it stood out. I liked the contrast. And the spacing of the lettering was good because I could go faster. If I looked away and then looked back, I could find my place.

In what ways did it make reading easier?

When you added color, it was easier to see the words.
