BeeLine Reader, a research-backed tool that aims to improves online reading ability by using eye-guiding color gradients in text, today announced that its technology has been adopted by Reading Is Fundamental, the literacy nonprofit.

Founded in 1966, Reading is Fundamental has a long history of providing underserved students with books and curriculum activities to promote literacy and quality of life. The nonprofit has just launched its first digital reading platform, Literacy Central, complementing its ongoing print distribution with digital content to reach students where they learn. The new resource gives parents, educators and children access to thousands of free supplemental literacy resources designed to increase interest, comprehension and frequency of reading among children.

“When we first saw BeeLine Reader, we knew it would be the perfect addition to our new digital platform, Literacy Central,” says Ed DeLeon, Reading is Fundamental’s Chief Program Officer. “BeeLine Reader’s research-backed technology will enable our students to improve their reading skills even more quickly.”
