Approximately 10% of the global population is affected by dyslexia. Readex aims to develop a smart reading aid to support affected students and promote inclusive learning environments. Utilizing artificial intelligence, our glasses will have the ability to recognize and extract words from the text being read, translating them into real-time audio perceived via earphones.

By converting text into audio, users can practice pronunciation and reading speed. The use of contrast filters and highlighting can further help eliminate distractions and support the natural reading flow. An accompanying digital learning application will assess students’ reading abilities and detect specific word groups or categories in which the user frequently makes mistakes. As a result, personalized exercises can be offered to facilitate steady improvement, and the level of the glasses’ assistance can be continuously adapted.
