The original Alpheios reading tools were Firefox extensions providing reading aids for any Latin, Greek, or Arabic text on the web. Browser technology has improved since Alpheios' first phase of development (2007-2010) and the existing tools are now deprecated. We are actively developing new versions of these tools which will work with all modern browsers and mobile devices. Resources for the prior versions of the tools, including videos and tutorials remain available.
Our immediate goal is to make all of the prior Alpheios functionality available in modern 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.
