    Ok, so I have know for a while that im dyslexic to a certain degree. I mix up my "d"s and "b"s, I cant tell my left from my right, let alone anyone elses. And worst of all, reading is kinda a pain. My eyes skip around and all this weird shiz. I make up words and insert them where ever I please. It was a nightmare when I was called upon to read aloud in elementary classes.

    I highly suggest you check this shiz out.

    Its a FONT that helps dyslexics like me read like everyone else.

    If you head over to the page i linked to up above, You can get this font as an add on for Chrome, Firefox,iOS, etc. I really really suggest it, especially if you suffer like I do. I am now using all over the internet thanks to Chrome, including here.

    Chreears, lesdysics! :cheers:

    It looks like this is a helpful, handy tool for those who need it; sadly, all too many are quick to diss-lexics.

    This font must be weighing down on my eyes, I can't read like this. But, if you're dyslexic, then this is great for you guys.

    Speaking as a non-dyslexic I find that font to almost be a bit too strong to provide an enjoyable reading experience (for me).

    At large size it looks odd but readable without problems, but I don't really like the look of it when it's made smaller. Then again, if it helps dyslexics read I'm all for it.

    I don't have dyslexia, but I find this font to be very pleasant on the eye.

    I just hope people don't attach some sort of "disease stigma" to it. That should be reserved for Comic Sans :P

    It's very nice that they have something like this for people that have dyslexia. It's a great alternative. For me, on the other hand, I can hardly stand to read that text.

    I don't have dyslexia, but I have to say ...the guy who thought the principle that made this font (put some "fake weight" on them) is a genius.

    Even though I am not dyslexic, I find it much easier to read that kind of text. Adding to Chrome now.

    Nice find. I know someone that could benefit from this.
    A font to actually aid people, never would have thought of that.

    That joke was just kinda bad since dyslexia usually involves switching letters around in words, not adding nonsense to them, last time I checked.
