  • (2018-10-10) Willemijn Nieuwenhuis: David, thank you! This tool makes it possible to stay on a row with my sight while online reading sentences in a text. I have residual damage on my optical nerves because of having gone through a few inflamated eye nerves periods (neuritis optica). The result is that my eyes follow one another too slow when looking left or right and this gives me double sight. Especially while reading. Concentration helps but Screens Mask is better I would say:). Thanks again. I am now going to read my philosophy texts:). very kind regards, Willemijn Netherlands (Eindhoven)

  • (2020-02-11, v: Stephenie Buehrle: Color options?
    My child just showed me this amazing tool! I am SO PUMPED to have this reading aid! He and I both have light sensitivity and have used color overlays to help us with reading (hard copies and on screens). It would be ideal if this tool offered color options (I would pick a pale yellow or green, for example). I'm super grateful as it is and I hope that you do not mind my sharing feedback.
  • (2019-02-16, v: Options:
    I can help maintain the code if you would like to share it on github.
  • (2019-02-16, v: Options:
    Are you still maintaining this code? I would like to add some options 1) Add an option to darken/lighten the mask 2) Add some keyboard support to increase the size of the mask If you are not maintaining the code I am willing to add the options myself if you share the code base.
