Readers with dyslexia.

teensreading

Have you heard? There is a font called OpenDsylexia.  OpenDyslexic is a typeface designed to make reading easier for some symptoms of dyslexia. Letters have heavy weighted bottoms to  indicate direction. You are able to quickly figure out which part of the letter is down which aids in recognizing  the correct letter, and sometimes helps to keep your brain from rotating them around. Consistently weighted bottoms can also help reinforce the line of text. The unique shapes of each letter can help prevent confusion through flipping and swapping.

To help provide readers who have dyslexia I am publishing the printed version of my book Summer School Zombocalypse using OpenDyslexic typeface. It should be available August 1st. Hang in there and happy reading.

In the mean time check out the font at http://opendyslexic.org/
