Is There a Font Ideal for Dyslexics?

Feb 10, 2015 | Literacy

I have had a mixed feedback from introducing the font to dyslexic clients. Yes, some have seen that it helps, others have actually found it frustrating. What do you think?

Dyslexie, the Font

In the long run, it’s not really about which font is useful and which one is not. Isn’t it more important to ask – do I comprehend what I am reading? How focused am when reading and how long can I remain focused?

When we are in a state of frustration and disorientation, no font will make us feel better – if we are focused, have meaning with all the words we read and have corrected or mastered dyslexia – then I can see that a preference in a font can make reading even more enjoyable. Everyone will have a preference though, dyslexic or not.

    Times New Roman is too squiggly. The squiggles just make it harder to read. I prefer Tahoma. My preference is to use a text-reader. 🙂
