Introducing our new TextWizzard jQuery plugin

31 October 2012 Comments Off

Today we are presenting you one of our newest developments. But just before we tell you what is about, we would like to ask a few questions.

Were you ever in a situation, where reading an article on a website was difficult because of  the contrast between the background color and the color of the text ?

Or maybe you read texts in languages other then your own and a few words were unknown to you ? What did you do ? Copy the word or sentence and paste it into Google Translate?

Or maybe you wanted to share a sentence or two from a text from a webpage through various social media channels like Facebook or Twitter ?

Well as you probably guessed it by now, the textWizzard jQuery plugin is about these features. When your visitors select a text on your website a small toolbox will appear that will allow them to :

- see a magnified text with changeable colors of the text and background

- for better contrast the users can select from a large scale of predefined color combos for text and background

- share to Facebook and Twitter the selected text

- send via mail the selected text

- hear the selected text as the plugin has text to speech abilities, if your users want to hear the text and not read it

- last but not least, they can translate any text on fly to one of the languages available : Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, French, Italian, Latin, Maltese, Finnish, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Japanese, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Sweedish, Slovenian, Slovak, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese

- With this “all in one” approach, the textWizzard plugin offers the visitors of your site a better user experience, and the sites that use this script are more accessible to the public.

In the screenshots below you can see our plugin in action, before the popup window is activated and after it appears as an overlay on the content.
