Inspiration # 14: Dyslexie is a typeface for dyslectics.

One thing we’ve talked a lot about in class is readability. I found this movie online about a new typeface for people with dyslexia. Although this wasn’t an issue we specifically focused on, I think it’s great food for thought, especially with the populations we’ve been working with this semester.

From the YouTube description:
The typeface dyslexie is now available on http://www.studiostudio.nl/bestellen
Dyslexie is a typeface for dyslectics.
The University of Twente did research on the typeface. Hereby a part of their conclusion:
“The dyslectics made fewer errors, than the normal readers, on the EMT with the font “Dyslexie”. This is an indication that reading with the font “Dyslexie” decreases the amount of reading errors.”
