New Dyslexie Font

Dyslexia FontI have always loved reading and can’t imagine my life without words, but not everyone is able to decode text naturally. People who suffer from dyslexia can’t process symbols easily, affecting their ability to read for enjoyment.

According to Medical News Today, dyslexia is a specific reading disability due to a defect in the brain’s processing of graphic symbols. It is a learning disability that alters the way the brain processes written material. It is typically characterized by difficulties in word recognition, spelling and decoding.

Now, thanks to graphic designer Christian Boer, himself a dyslexic, there is hope. He designed a special font that helps dyslexics decode text easier thanks to variations in letters that look similar. You can read more about Boer and his award winning Dyslexie Font or see samples and an explanation of how it works. He also offers free downloads of his font here.
