Dyslexia font

Filed under: Computers, Open source — Tags: , — zundel @ pm

A fiend brings to my attention news of a font to help with dyslexia: Dyslexie.

I forget not everyone lives in open source.

See OpenDyslexic:

We most easily read proportional text with serifs: quickly and smoothly — and go right past error.s We best edit mono-spaced text.


Mono-spaced text also works well for dyslexia.
A mono-spaced font with slab serifs may work especially well.

I do almost all reading and editing in dark green mono-spaced text on a soft yellow background (“#003300 #FFFFCC“), reducing glare and eye strain, and assisting acute vision spotting errors.

  1. A good choice, but I might prefer a very dark red on a very light yellow.
