There are students at the school I work at who are dyslexic, and have the specific strand of dyslexia which doesn't deal well with black text on a white background. One way you overcome this with print is you put a coloured film over the text you're reading - and it really amazing how it improves their comprehension and their fluency (you can see an example of the overlay here).
I'm looking for a way to 'tint' the screen with software in the same manner on the mac. There is a windows solution, and a paid solution, but I'm looking for a free, cheap or built in way to achieve the same result. I've googled, and found a couple discussions but no solution.
Are any of you aware of any software or system preferences I can use to either:
tint the whole screen a colour (ideal)
change the background colour of windows / documents to one similar to the tint (better than nothing)
achieve a comparable result.
If you have dyslexia and have found a workaround for this challenge I'd be really grateful for your input as well!
I thought that this would be achievable with the color setting in System Preferences but I don't think it allows the tinting sense. I might be wrong though.
Thanks for your help!
