Distractions are everywhere. However, thanks to Mercury Reader, you can teach students to eliminate diversions when they read online.
Learners install the Chrome extension and then click the rocket icon in the upper-right corner of their browser. Mercury Reader prevents eye-catching advertisements, click-bait, and suggested links from appearing on screen. The main body of website text (center of the screen) remains.
Mercury Reader is also great for special-needs students. In addition to reducing side-screen distractions, the extension allows users to adjust the size of a website font (small, medium, and large), website typeface (serif or sans serif), and website background (light or dark) for easier reading.
