Dyslexie – a font for dyslexics

Tl;dw –

Dyslexia causes the reader to see letters as real world objects, influenced by gravity, motion and mistaken identity (letters of the alphabet do look pretty similar!).

Working with this trait, the designers of Dyslexie use fat bottoms, longer necks and accentuated curves to make it easier for readers to recognise differences between letters.
