Dyslexie is a revolutionary new font, designed to make life easier for sufferers of dyslexia. The font has been created specifically to enhance the reading experience for dyslexic people, using everything we know about how dyslexia affects perception of letters and words.
Traditional fonts are designed purely from an aesthetic point of view, meaning that they frequently have characteristics which make some or all of their letters difficult for dyslexic people to read. Sufferers of dyslexia often find themselves jumbling up the letters of a word, or inverting and flipping some letters because they look too similar.
The Dyslexie font has been intentionally crafted to ensure that every letter is unique. With varying tail-lengths, larger-than-normal openings, and semi-italics, the font gives each letter its own highly-recognizable appearance. A heavy baseline anchors the text, so that it's less likely that readers will invert words.
When reading any text written in the Dyslexie font, dyslexic people have less difficulty, and make fewer errors. Reading becomes quick, easy, and above all, fun.
And while Dyslexie is primarily a functional font, we also understand the importance of aesthetics, and have worked hard to create a font that is as visually appealing as it is useful. The resulting font is the perfect combination of form and function for optimal reading and beautiful looks: easy on the eye, in more ways than one.
The final design of the Dyslexie font is the result of years of advanced research and development. It looks great, but more importantly, it's been proven to work.
In 2012 there has been a survey research under 8 schools and 250 home and work users of the typeface Dyslexie.And with good results. Read for yourself and download the survey research here.
According to independent research by the University of Twente in the Netherlands, the Dyslexie font improves the readability of a piece of text. The study found that people with dyslexia achieved higher scores on the “one-minute test” when using Dyslexie. Download the report here.
