About LexAble

LexAble is an assistive technology company that develops software focusing on dyslexia, mental health and neurodiversity. Founded in 2009 by a Dyslexic entrepreneur –  our mission is simple – to help people achieve their true potential. 

Founder, Neil Cottrell, developed the company’s first product Global AutoCorrect in his bedroom at the age of just 15!  Neil was frustrated correcting spelling mistakes every time he had to write an assignment, so he decided to do something about it.

Following Neil’s graduation from university in 2009, he went on to refine the product and founded LexAble. Soon after, Global AutoCorrect was launched across the whole of the UK into the Disabled Student Allowance and Access to Work markets. 

LexAble has since grown to a team of highly trained technical and customer service staff, who love solving problems and creating solutions to help support those with disabilities.

And, 2019, saw the launch of LexAble’s newest product – Global Tasks – a task management solution designed specifically with dyslexia, mental health and neurodiversity in mind. 

Global AutoCorrect and Global Tasks are used at many universities, schools and workplaces in the UK and throughout the English speaking world. Since April 2021, LexAble is pleased to have joined the texthelp group
