    The purpose of the thesis is to develop a mobile application that will help people with reading disorder. We focused on people with dyslexia. First, we examined dyslexia and ways to ease symptoms, that will help the reader. With the help of colleagues from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and with study of existing applications, we have set goals regarding the functionality of our applications. Our first goal was to make the application, that you can read e-books in pdf format, with settings that will make it easier to read. The second objective is that the user can browse the web, where the application will manipulate the website in a way that will make it easier to see the web site for people with dyslexia. We decided that we will create an application for the Android operating system, but we had problems parsing the document pdf. We tried also to build on the platform PhoneGap but we also had a problem. In the end, we managed to implement our objectives for the operating system iOS.
