New Font Helps Kids with Dyslexia Read More Accurately

Last updated on March 3rd, 2018 at 11:22 am

Christian Boer, a graphic designer from the Netherlands, put his artistic talent to work to solve his own struggles with dyslexia. He designed a new font that gives the brain extra help recognizing letters, words and punctuation. The changes to the letters are subtle but may make all the difference to a child or adult with the condition. The font was his Masters thesis and now Dyslexie is available for purchase on his website at http://www.studiostudio.nl/project-dyslexie/ and payment is accepted via Paypal in euros.  There are business and personal versions as well as a school version for kids.

Here is a video demonstration of the dyslexie font:
