OpenDyslexic Font Helps Readers with Dyslexia Read

Designer Abelardo Gonzalez has created OpenDyslexic, a free, open-sourced font that can help people with dyslexia read a book more effectively.

You can download The Bible in the font and the ERBrowser now has support for the font so readers can use it online. Check it out:

OpenDyslexic is created to help with some of the 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.
