New Typeface Hopes To Make Reading Possible For Dyslexics

Dutch designer Christian Boer has developed a new typeface focused on making it possible for people with dyslexia to read without assistance. The typeface is called “Dyslexie” and each letter has heavy base lines with alternating tail and stick lengths and some semicursive slants—these are all modifications that help to better differentiate between the letters which can confuse people who have this strange condition.

“When they’re reading, people with dyslexia often unconsciously switch, rotate and mirror letters in their minds,” explains Boer. “Traditional typefaces make this worse, because they base some letter designs on others, inadvertently creating ‘twin letters’ for people with dyslexia.”
