The inspiration came from my friend who was dyslexic and that's why it was hard for him to read text on browser

What it does

Sahaaya is browser extension that changes the appearence of the entire web based on your design customizations and preferences. It’s especially helpful for people with dyslexia, because it comes built-in with an option that adjusts the color-contrast ratio and typography. We provide a huge variety of color contrast schemes with different font styles so that every user can adapt to his/her preferences.

How I built it

I build this app using chrome APIs to manipulate web pages to change their color contrast and typography according to the preferences

Challenges I ran into

The greatest challanges I faced in this project to manipulate DOM of external websites that too using a chrome extension

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I was able to make this project in such a short time(4 days) and I am really proud of what I have accomplished in such a short time

What I learned

I really mastered DOM manipulation after using it so extensively in this project and got a really in depth understanding of how Chrome extensions and APIs work

What's next for Sahaaya - Making web accessible to everyone

I want to add Text to speech feature in this extension to also include auditory challenged people
