More dyslexic friendly fonts?

  • 7 votes

Can there be a wider selection of dyslexic friendly fonts? I think Comic Sans is the only one. I haven't looked in detail because it would mean trying them all. 

A dyselxic friendly font is one with obvious ascenders and descenders (the ups and downs on letters like p and t)

Or the rounded bottom of letters like g. 

The 'a' is a funny one because I have family who can't read the 'a' with a tail on the top but a friend who can just fine. 

And also spacing between letters so that the combinations don't look like another letter. For example r and n (rn) can sometimes look like 'm'.

I know that every dyslexic person I know likes Century Gothic.

And I did some research and it is generally prefered by under 19's.

Just an idea!:)

If this will help you then I definitely think this should be essential. So I am trying to bump up this post to show the administrators it is necessary!

That is a goofd idea. I am syslexic but do not suffor from this preticaular issue. They are many diffrent types of dyselxia and many diffrent degrees of it. I am very slight, it doesnt effect myself at all really. But yes this is a good idea, for the site  should support people that find it hard to read are cetain font. :)

good idea!!!
