posterior cortical atrophy reading-assistance vision

What is Readclear?

Readclear was a prototype reading-assistance app for android tablets designed to help people with posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) and other degenerative conditions that impair vision.

Read-Clear helps with:

  • Visual disorientation – getting “lost in the page”
  • Visual crowding – words becoming cluttered together
  • Oculomotor apraxia – difficulty in following text along a line

How do I know read-clear works?

The app went through a clinical trail in which we tested it’s effectiveness for supporting reading in people with visual impairments. The results of this study were positive and have now been published in the Journal of Alzheimer Disease.

Who worked on this?

Developed in collaboration with researchers from University College London, people living with PCA, and their relatives. Funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust.
