New typeface improves readability for dyslexics

Open Dyslexic is a new typeface created with the intention of increasing online readability for people with dyslexia. The letters have bolder strokes at the bottom, which gives each letter a sense of visual weight. The thick strokes prevent the brain from flipping letters around, making it easier for dyslexic users to read.
