Readability Provides Easy-On-The-Eyes Online Reading

09Mar09

Readability is a bookmarklet that allows you to quickly remove distracting ads from a Website.  Just choose the text and margin size you prefer and drag the bookmarklet up to your bookmarks toolbar.  Whenever you’re on a site that is cluttered with too many distractions, click on the Readability bookmarklet and you’ll be presented with an ad-free environment to read your article.

    LOVE THIS! I’m a woman who is legally blind. Meaning I have usable sight and can “see” my computer BUT the visual clutter on a site can be completely overwhelming. The “noise” on a site can turn me off to the content and I simply give up.
    Thank you!
