Summary
Easy Reading is a help for the Internet.
Many people cannot understand some information on the Internet.
But Internet pages should be accessible for everyone
Easy Reading makes surfing the Internet easier.

For example, Easy Reading can be used on a web page to:

  • read out selected text
  • change its appearance (font size, background color, reading mode) according to your wishes
  • make text easier to understand by using symbols or explanations
  • translate text into another language (from English to German and vice versa)
  • Easy Reading also displays certain Internet pages in plain language or in an understandable language

Safety
Risk impact

Easy Reading for Firefox requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this add-on unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Easy Reading for Firefox has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Enkelt och intuitivt verktyg där man kan ställa in sin profil utifrån de funktioner man önskar använda. Älskar att det finns fri symbolanvändning med Widgitsymboler, då många skolor använder olika program med licens för Widgitsymboler. Har saknat att kunna få symbolstöd på olika hemsidor, så detta verktyg fyller verkligen ett stort behov hos många!
