Today I’d like to talk about technology. Whether software or hardware, it’s amazing the ways that it revolutionises our lives. I recently came across some technology I’d love to share, and get your own tech & stories.
The technology I’m going to share is called Bionic Reading. It is a technology focused on complimenting the brain’s reading process, by guiding the eyes through text with artificial fixation points, such as bold text or different font sizing. It has been especially well received by people diagnosed with ADHD due to its ability to retain attention of the reader for longer. I’ve found this handy when used with technical documentation or other text heavy works, to avoid eye fatigue.
Bionic Reading is available as an API, a traditional document converter tool is available, a Chrome extension to process websites for Bionic Reading, and then API is integrated into multiple RSS Reader apps such as Lire, Reeder 5 and Fiery Feeds. I’ve purchased Reeder 5 and found it easy to use, I imported my Feedly account and had all of my existing feeds presented immediately, no need to manually reimport them all, and have since found Bionic Reading to be a handy way to go through my feeds faster.
