It's a color code that helps people with reading problems sound out words. You won't like it, fluent readers don't care for it one whit, and it has no effect on dyslexia, but people with non-dyslexic reading trouble like it.
I'm not the first person to come up with this, at least four other people have independently done good work, and there is a patent out there somewhere. The problem with the whole idea is getting people to use it!
For me, the whole thing started when I found out I had the math version of dyslexia at age 42. This explained a lot... I was taking elementary education classes at the time, and I began to focus on the kids with learning trouble. One day as I was driving home, cussing my ineffectiveness when I saw a McDonald's sign, and I got the bright Idea that the colors in the sign could help my kids read. I bought a box of crayons, learned HTML computer code, and wound up with the website you see above.
Years have gone by. I have no idea how to get the silly stuff properly tested by qualified researchers. You would think that teachers would be on this like kittens on string; they don't have much to work with presently. That hasn't been the case, they are scared to do anything different and untested. Researchers in education play it safe as well, questionaires of student teachers pass as research while this project rots away in cyberspace.
What do I want? It isn't a patent or money. I want the satisfaction that comes with making the world a better place. I want for this idea to be used to help people with reading trouble. Is there any way to get this project out of a rut?
