People who have dyslexia often have problems learning as they find it difficult to read and comprehend words. A new font called ‘OpenDyslexic’ is especially created for people with dyslexia to increase readability. The open-sourced font is heavily weighted at the bottoms to prevent the reader’s brain from rotating them, and each letter is unique to avoid flipping and swapping.

OpenDyslexic comes in various styles, such as regular, bold, italic, and bold-italic. The font can be downloaded for free and there are “no restriction on using OpenDyslexic outside of attribution.” The font was created by Abelardo Gonzalez, a freelance developer.
