Although it is estimated that approximately one in ten people have dyslexia, until recently, the strides to make the written word more accessible to those people, have been sparse. Dyslexia is not tied to IQ, yet it directly affects how students perform in school, and how they take on new information. With this in mind, compassionate typographers have created a number of typefaces designed specifically for dyslexics. Letters are altered so that there are fewer mix-ups and "jumbling" of letters. Below, some samples of the new type, and how to acquire them.
Ben Barrett-Forrest made this paper-letter animation about the history of fonts and typography, in a visual ode to the written word. Ben's work took: 291 Paper Letters, 2,454 Photographs, and 140 hours of work!
