Dyslexie, A font for those with Dyslexia

Graphic designer Christian Boer created a typeface designed to be easier to read for those with Dyslexia.

“Dyslexie is not a cure, but I see the font as something like a wheelchair,” Boer said, who also has the reading disorder.

Dyslexics view letters as 3D objects as they appear jumbled and rotated. The font has thicker lines at the bottom of the letters to help dyslexics pin down which part of the letter belongs to the baseline of the sentence.
