An English Reading Tool as a NLP Showcase

We introduce -SmartReader- an English reading tool for non-native English readers to overcome language related hindrances while reading a text. It makes extensive use of widely-available NLP tools and resources. SmartReader is a web-based application that can be accessed from standard browsers running on PCs or tablets. A user can choose a text document from the system’s library they want to read or can upload a new document of their own and the system will display an interactive version of such text, that provides the reader with an intelligent e-book functionality.
