Hi Leyna – we’ve had good luck with SS Overlay, as well as Window Shades: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Enhancements/Other-Desktop-Enhancements/WindowShades.shtml

I’ve also attached a guide that our center has created on technology strategies for Irlen Sydrome.

Let me know if you have any questions!

You might try http://fx-software.co.uk/assistive.htm and scroll down to find ssOverlay. Works well on Win 7 & Win 8. Only problem is in Win8 it only masks desktop programs and not Win8 metro apps. It is free.

Hope this helps…

I have a new student who is able to read more clearly and accurately using a cyan transparency over printed material. I know that Read & Write Gold has a very nice masking tool to use on the screen which works great for her on campus computers. However, the student is wanting the same sort of function on her own laptop (pc). Does anyone know of any cheap or freeware that masks the color of the screen? I've found a couple of apps for iphones but nothing else.
