People with dyslexia often find it hard to read and write, primarily because it’s “hard for them to mentally lock in” as described by the person suffering from Dyslexia. This makes studying a struggle for them however it is seen that in most cases people with this condition find it easier to read on electronic devices rather than the real document itself. Although it’s helpful to have a guide to help out when difficulties arise. But what if a person doesn’t have access to a guide? This is where NotAlone comes in to help. Dyslexia can be an obstacle but with LLMs and Deep Learning making people’s life easier let’s take a step to make it more accessible to everyone so that barriers like these don’t dominate a person’s will to learn and write. NotAlone is specifically designed to empower individuals with dyslexia by providing a seamless learning-rich writing environment tailored to their unique needs. Our goal is to ensure that no one feels left behind in today's fast-paced world. People with dyslexia often prefer speaking over writing, hence many take the help of an ASR app to help them do so. Inspired by this, we provide a Whisper-based STT feature to help them type by speaking. ChatGPT-based writing assistance is another essential feature of NotAlone. This feature provides personalized guidance and support by helping users overcome challenges in writing and reading by:- 1. Helping them write about anything they want 2. Grammar Correction 3. Rewriting 4. Explaining a word/phrase 5. Summarize a paragraph 6. Suggest Synonyms 7. Chat-based assistance Even though we help them read better but some words are complicated even for us to understand this is where Text-to-Speech service can help them read a word or a paragraph whenever they feel stuck. Beyond these core features, we provide an interface that allows users to adjust settings, such as line height, word spacing, and background color. All this along with custom fonts that cater specifically to dyslexic people.
