FTR, here's a good talk about why a funky new font design cannot treat/fix/cure/overcome dyslexia: youtube.com/watch?v=0YvHxMB35B

At *best* all that a typeface like OpenDyslexia will do is force the reader to slow down by spending incrementally more time deciphering every word image or by rereading. And you can do that with any bad typeface design: just use hard-to-figure-out letterforms! Use bad spacing! Print in a really light ink color! Slowing the reader down is not improving the situation for them.

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program
