ChromeVis Can Make Webpages Easier to Read

ChromeVis is a Google Chrome extension designed to make it easier for people with vision impairments to read the content of webpages. When installed ChromeVis allows you to highlight the text on any webpage and have it enlarged and placed on an easy-to-read background. Your highlighted text appears in a pop-up box over the original page so that you can quickly go back to the original source if you want to. ChromeVis can be adjusted to meet your text size and text color preferences.

Applications for Education
ChromeVis could be a helpful extension for students and adults who need the content of a webpage modified in order to read it.
