Making reading on-screen more efficient and more accessible for readers of all levels.

BeeLine Reader has discovered a way to make reading on-screen easier, faster, and more accessible by using a subtle color gradient that draws the reader’s eyes from the end of one line to the beginning of the next. Independent research studies show that BeeLine Reader's departure from displaying text in monochrome provides significant benefits for many types of readers, dramatically improving reading fluency and reading comprehension. In total, BeeLine Reader has been used to read over 250 million pages worldwide by students of all ages and skill levels. BeeLine Reader has been adopted by literacy nonprofit Reading Is Fundamental as well as accessibility nonprofit Bookshare. BeeLine Reader also offers various consumer tools for reading PDFs, websites, and ebooks. Based in Silicon Valley, BeeLine Reader has received awards from The Tech Museum of Innovation and NewSchools Venture Fund.
