Helperbird: Great extension for users that are visually impaired and with dyslexia

Helperbird was built by a dyslexic programmer to help people with similar conditions. It's an accessibility tool that allows users to customize their reading experience and web browsing.

It's a Google Chrome extension that lets users change the fonts, background color, text, and other similar stuff. It's easy to install, from the Chrome Web Store, like most of the other extensions, it's COPPA and FERPA compliant and it's also compatible with the latest Chrome Books.

It also features cloud capabilities which means that it will automatically synchronize the settings to the cloud so they can be used on different devices.

Helpbird allows users to change the fonts of the websites they are visiting with ease and can choose from Arial, Comic Sans, Tahoma, Verdana, Century Gothic, Trebuchet, and OpenDyslexic.

The extension also lets users change the ruler settings, (e.g. height (in pixels), as well as the position and the color of the ruler). Another thing they can change is the background and tint colors.

Helpbird allows you to enable or disable the Text to Speech from the extension's GUI, which is a great option for visually impaired users, and you can disable the extension from running on specific websites with the Blacklist option.

In the end, Helpbird is a handy tool that will help a lot of users with Dyslexia or that are even visually impaired have an easier time browsing. It's easy to install and use and also it can also sync on multiple devices.
