The font for people with dyslexia: Dyslexie

Dyslexia is a broad term defining a learning disability that impairs a person's fluency or comprehension accuracy in being able to read, and spell.

The font Dyslexie is especially designed for people with dyslexia. When they use it, they make fewer errors whilst they are reading. It makes reading easier for them and it takes less effort. The Dyslexia font is used by several schools, universities, speech therapists and remedial teachers. Independent research undertaken by the University of Twente, proved that the Dyslexia font improves reading results.

The study at the University of Twente showed that people with dyslexia made fewer reading errors when they use the Dyslexie font compared to using standard font.

Pretty cool (if it works) except for the 'how can we prevent this to happen?' line... grammar, anyone? :)

From success to failure is one step. From failure to success is a long road.

This is a very cool project!

But I would like to point out that there isn't only 26 letters in "western script". There is 26 letters in English script. Or would you descripe for example Spanish and German as oriental languages?

"How can we prevent this to happen"?

"It prevents them to look like each other"?

Good idea. Bad grammar.

Funny how this font looks so sloppy yet is so easy to read.
