4 engineering Students create an app to help dyslexics read books with their phone camera

35 million school-children in India are dyslexic. This means they have problems with reading, spelling, attention span or even speed of effective learning. These children could show brilliance in other parts of the intelligence spectrum, but due to their inability to cope with the modern education system, most of them end up with low grades. Recognizing the necessity for endeavours to help these children, four engineering students namely Tushar Gupta, Mudita Sisodia, Schezeen Fazulbhoy and Mitali Raju teamed up to create ‘Augmenta11y’, a free smartphone app which helps children with dyslexia read books in the real world using their phone’s camera.
