Could a simple font help dyslexics read?
‘Dyslexie’ helps sufferers overcome their difficulties by making letters more unique. A study by researchers at the University of Twente in the Netherlands found that Dyslexie reduced the likelihood of reading errors for dyslexics. Making certain letters thicker and thinner helps dyslexics better identify between similar-looking letters such as ‘b’ and ‘d’.
