make the BeeLine Reader plugin available for Microsoft Word.
I currently use the BeeLine Reader plugin for my browser, which helps making dense text passages easier to read. As a legal professional, I would really like to be able to utilize this feature in Microsoft Word but I was told that the plugin architecture does not support BeeLine. Would you please consider adding it? Thank you!

As a college student at Harvard, I often have to read a lot of text at a time and BeeLine makes that easier for me and helps me avoid headaches. It would be 10x more helpful if I could access this on Microsoft Word which is something I use a lot in college.

On-screen reading can be difficult for many students when they are at their computer even for a short amount of time. Now that most students are completing their classes either 100% online, or in a hybrid model, this is even more true. BeeLine Reader is a tool that helps both people with typical vision and atypical vision read faster and more efficiently. The program changes the text on your screen to a guiding color gradient that allows your eyes to easily transition from one line to the next without getting lost. Not only will this help to increase your speed of reading, but it also aids in keeping you focused. With the use of BeeLine Reader this past semester I received the highest GPA I have ever gotten- all due to the simple fact that I could read with ease. It used to take me around 40-50 minutes to even read one page, now I can read in less than half that. It would be so helpful if Microsoft chose to integrate Beeline Reader within their interface, as then I could utilize it more. Right now I am mainly using Google Docs because I can use the Chrome extension of BeeLine, however, I enjoy Microsoft's interface much more. Incorporating BeeLine reader into Microsoft would be a game-changer accessibility wise for the disabled community, but also support the many students whose eyes grow tired after so much time in front of a screen. PLEASE find a way to incorporate this into your interface. This would be a HUGE advancement.
How many more of us begging you to add this will it take for you to consider it? Those of us with visiual impairments are feeling ignored.
Yes make this happen!

I have a visual impairment that federally defines me as disabled. Throughout my childhood, I really struggled to read but did not learn of my visual impairment until very late in life. I wish I had this extension years ago! My eyes struggle to track, especially from one line to the next. I also have added difficulty when it comes to reading online, so this program was a lifesaver. It made a huge difference in my online reading and learning abilities. Now that so many classes have moved online it will be even more helpful than before. I honestly just wish it could be a full downloadable application, so I could use it on more than just chrome browsers. Having BeeLine on all components of my computer, such as settings or Micrsoft Word documents would be such a tremendous help!
Great help for dyslexic students.

I've grown up with Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Auditory Processing Disorder. I have always loved Microsoft programs, and I always recommend word products to others.
During my undergrad Word helped get me through my four long years with spellcheck, and quick search; as searching lines is a struggle for me.
I am now in a Grad program, working towards my M.A, where I teach incoming freshman, and learned about Beeline. Within a week it changed my life. What took me 40 minutes to read online before, now takes me only 20 minutes to read. I almost cried with joy at the amount of time I realized I would be getting back in my life.
Word has always been there for students, Microsoft does its best to make the programs affordable, so that all students have the access they need to succeed in their education and early adult life.
If Beeline and Word were able to somehow come together, I KNOW, it would change the lives of thousands of students young and old.
Please consider looking into this. It would mean the world to all of us goldfish who are more often than not, judged by our abilities to climb trees.

Thank you for all you have done up until now, I hope you can continue to help students everywhere.
Please, please, please allow us to use Beeline Reader plugin with Microsoft Word. It makes it much easier to read for those of us who have reading disabilities.

As an autistic freelance editor who works primarily in word or PDFs, beeline being available for Word would make my whole life so much easier. Visual fatigue with autism is a problem that beeline alleviates really well!

its wonderful i want it for all y study.
I'm a student with visual disparities. BeeLine Reader was recommended by my polytrauma specialist at the VA. Please support those who are visually impaired by providing this extension to Word. Having BeeLine Reader would be very helpful in improving my study skills academically. Additionally, it would be easier to read any document file. Thanks.
As a teacher of students who have visual impairments, I have seen the benefit of BeeLine reader and feel strongly that it should be added to Microsoft Word.

Our community college students have to read a lot of Word documents and many of them have reading issues. The BeeLine Reader would be a great asset to their reading comprehension.
I'd love to see Beeline integrated into microsoft and apple products to increase my reading ability. It couldn't hurt to add Beeline to your terms of service agreement as well.
I am dyslexic and BeeLine reduces my symptoms significantly. Would you please add this for your disabled clients?
Beeline helps so much when you have reading disability like dyslexia or tracking difficulties. My family and I would benefit greatly appreciate it on Microsoft products.
Beeline would be great for reading my documents on the screne
I badly need Beeline to be integrated into Microsoft products.

Please add Beeline to Word. I'm a researcher & teacher with so much to read. I'm using the plugin for my browser and it's great!!
Mary A Pickett commented
So many of my students struggle with the processing required for fluent reading. BeeLine would be a great addition to the most widely used word processing platform used in schools!
