AUTOR is a text-processing tool which can give you feedback on how easy or difficult your text is for a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Furthermore, AUTOR can help you with making your text more accessible by suggesting ways to rewrite it, as well as suggesting images or definitions which could help the reader understand it better. AUTOR is based on scientific research involving adult participants who were diagnosed with autism.
