ScoopWhoop: These Delhi Teens Created A Reading App For People With Dyslexia. Bravo!

Ever wondered how difficult would it be to read online, if words were dancing around the screen? For people with Dyslexia, it is an everyday struggle. But two teenagers from Delhi, want to help them.

Meet Anand Chowdhary and Nishant Gadihoke. These brilliant teenagers from Delhi have created an app called Oswald, that helps people with Dyslexia, visual impairment and learning disabilities to browse the web easily.

How did this idea come to these teenagers? In an interview with Scoopwhoop, this is what Anand had to say, “I realised that many of us, designers and developers, never account for the 15% of the population with disabilities.
