Typeface for Dyslexic Readers

July 17th, 2011 by Kel Smith | Filed under Cognitive, Dyslexia, Innovation

Typeface for dyslexic readersDyslexie is a typeface developed by Studio Studio to help dyslexic readers better identify and “ground” letter shapes. It’s based on the notion that of the 26 letters in the standard Latin-based alphabet, as used in English, many of the letters look similar. For example, such letters as v/w, i/j and m/n confuse people with dyslexia. Dyslexie emphasizes the subtle differences in the letters, rendering them more readable as a result. You can watch a video of Dyslexi in action.
