(WTNH)– Recently, a new computer font has been created aimed at making it easier for people with dyslexia to read on the computer.
The Dyslexie typeface features “a heavy baseline, alternating stick/tail lengths, larger-than-normal openings, an a semi-cursive slant.”
Dyslexie says that normal fonts are designed aesthetically while the typeface is designed to make letters distinguishable and easy to read.
According to the International Dyslexia Association, 15- to 20-percent of Americans have a language based learning disability and dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing and spelling difficulties.
