FOCUS MODE

Remove all distractions from the page and focus on only one word, sentence or paragraph at a time. Focus Mode retains all of Lexico's helpful features. For example, tap the read button to see one word at a time and break words into syllables. Or tap a word inside the focus window to see that word in an easier-to-read typeface.

READ ANYTHING, ANYWHERE

With iOS’s ‘Create PDF’ action extension, any document or web page can be saved as a PDF, which you can send to Lexico to read. 

To send a document or web page to Lexico, tap the share button and tap 'Create PDF'. Once iOS has created the PDF document, tap the share extension once more and select 'Copy to Lexico'.

If you don't see 'Create PDF', tap the 'More' option, scroll down, and enable 'Create PDF'.

SIDE-BY-SIDE MODE

Stay in any app and use Lexico to make reading easier with Side-by-Side Mode. Once you've placed Lexico next to another app using your iPad's split-view mode, open Side-by-Side Mode from the menu and simply select and drag any text into Lexico's window. Alternatively, tap the paste button to paste any text from the clipboard or tap the keyboard button to manually enter text.

NO PDF? NO PROBLEM

Use Lexico’s Read with Lexico extension to read any ebook or document.

To start, open an ebook in iBooks, Kindle, or your favourite reading app. Find the page you'd like to read. Then, take a screenshot by pushing your iPad's lock and home buttons at the same time.

Once you see your screenshot, adjust the selection frame, tap the share button in the top-right corner, and select Read with Lexico.

READ ALONG MODE

With Read-Along Mode you can stay on the page and still see your text in the Open Dyslexic typeface.

To enable Read Along Mode, tap the Settings button in the top-right corner, and enable the the Read Along Mode switch. Once you've dismissed the Settings popover, enable Focus Mode, select some text, and tap the Read Along button when it slides into view on the right.

The rest is easy: just swipe left to move to the next word or right to go back.
