  • Distraction Minimizer tool removes distracting content so you can focus on the main text.
  • Color Overlay/Reading Line Guide allows you to focus line by line for visual support.
  • Screenshot Reader or OCR (Optical Character Recognition) tool allows you to select inaccessible text from PDFs or convert images of text from a smartphone and have it read aloud.
