A Digital Tool for People with ADHD
Focus Ex is a tool that helps users to read digital texts. It was primarily designed based on the needs of people with ADHD. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is the collective term for a group of neurological symptoms causing much difficulty in everyday functioning. One of the most characteristic symptoms of ADHD is the difficulty to maintain focus, especially during reading.
The new extension helps filter out distracting factors, divides the textual content and replaces the font settings of the target text with personalized ones, thus enhancing concentration. In this way, instead of fast input, the reader is fed the text gradually, which facilitates a deeper understanding of the content.
The font helps the reader thanks to its form, while also providing a new kind of reading experience through its interactivity at the touch of a button. It was developed especially for this project. The variable technology allows the customization of the font size, width, thickness, and even focus intensity. In addition, words in the selected text section can be enlarged with a magnifier, thus further enhancing the quality of remembering content.
This project serves as Vatány Szabolcs’ master thesis or diploma at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME). It has not yet come to the realization of the project. If you believe in it and its help for many people, then donate here.
