ER Browser is an iPad/iPhone web browser designed specifically for dyslexia and visual stress. Choose your Font, Choose your Colours and Browse the Web!

Carol Leynse Harpold‘s insight:

ER Browser is a new mobile web browser app (.99) providing choice of color background and font to support individuals with Irlen Syndrome. The color background environment applies only when browsing the Internet and not all apps so use of filters might still be needed when in individual apps if color filter is desired.  What is not in the color range however (although can somewhat be managed by dimming the screen in the Settings menu) are shades of gray which I have found to be a choice for some individuals.

If you are a color filter user on mobile devices, this app might just be a great option for web browsing or accessing Internet based information!
