Since winning the Accessibility Award at the Tech4Good Awards 2012, Lexable has gone from strength to strength.
Founded by Neil Cottrell in 2009, Lexable is the company behind Neil’s creation, Global AutoCorrect – discreet, intuitive software that helps people with dyslexia focus on the content of their work by automatically, and accurately, correcting their spelling as they type.
From these humble beginnings, Global AutoCorrect is now used in universities, schools and workplaces throughout the English-speaking world, helping thousands of people with dyslexia to flourish.
The same year as it won the Accessibility Award, Dr. Trevor Humby of Cardiff University studied the benefits of Global AutoCorrect. The research showed that Global Auto Correct improved dyslexic students’ recall of information by 18%, bringing them in line with their non-dyslexic peers.
The company has recently expanded to a team of eight and offer corporate workshops around dyslexia strategies and success. These unique workshops give people the opportunity to have an honest learning experience about dyslexia and the chance to explore real world ideas and solutions for the workplace.
Most recently, Lexable released Global AutoCorrect for Mac in February 2014, allowing a whole network of new of users to benefit from the life-changing software.
