A free-to-use font designed to help people with dyslexia is gaining favour.
OpenDyslexic’s characters have been given “heavy-weighted bottoms” to prevent them from flipping and swapping around in the minds of their readers.
A recent update to the popular app Instapaper has adopted the text format as an option for its users.
The font has also been built into a word processor, an ebook reader and has been installed on school computers.
The project was created by Abelardo Gonzalez, a New Hampshire-based mobile app designer, who released his designs onto the web at the end of last year.
