The Alpheios Reading Tools provide reading aids for any Latin or Ancient Greek text on the web, with experimental support for Classical Arabic and Persian. Our alpha release of Alpheios Version 2 is now available for the latest Chrome and Firefox browsers. Support for other browsers and mobile devices and additional functionality will be coming soon.
Our immediate goal is to make all of the functionality from the original Alpheios Version 1 Firefox extensions available in Version 2 for major browsers and on mobile devices, expanding at the same time to support more languages, including Persian, Syriac and Hebrew. Longer term our goals are manifold, from enhancing the reading experience to include audio and imagery as well as linguistic aids and games, to developing a deep, data-backed understanding of how and why people learn languages and what the effect is on the brain.
