Please help identify a software for one of our readers


Hey Everyone – We are calling on your combined knowledge and expertise to help a fellow member of the DCT community. We have received an email from “Eric” who is visually impaired and trying to track down an application he once utilized to help with reading web pages. We have searched for the software ourselves but without any luck.

These are the details Eric can remember about the software:

I used to have a program which could strip out a web page to just give the main subject and show it in a larger print but I cannot remember it’s name.

It was free and I think it was associated with an old version of Firefox. I have no idea how I came to have it but it showed as a small red square at the top left corner of the menu bar, and after it had closed the page briefly it opened with the extracted article. One thing I remember was that at the bottom of the page it asked if I wanted to send it to ‘Kindle’. At the time I was using Windows XP SP3

If anyone can identify this software could you please supply the details in a reply hereunder.

NOTE: We have already ascertained it is not the ‘LowBrowse’ add-on for Firefox.

Thank you all!! 🙂
