letrole: Dyslexia could be just a label, according to scientists, after a study of brain scans found there is little difference between the way children with the condition think while trying to read and those who simply have a low IQ.


Sooo....

Dyslexia is a Learned Behaviour?

Wow, really?  That's kinda cool.


It takes some practice.

Hey, has anyone taken advantage of this perfect invitation to tell any adolescent jokes about dyslexics? Because those are extremely funny.

Hrmm well the font really doesn't seem to help me at all. In fact it hurts my eyes -_-.

That font looks like it's from the 1970's

JackieRabbit: OK, Photoshopers, get to it and produce us the lyrics to Queen's Fat Bottomed Girls in this font


Or you could just install the font, and copy and paste the lyrics. But what the hell, here's a screenshot:

Abelardo Gonzalez, a mobile app designer from New Hampshire...decided to design a font from scratch and then make it free to anyone who wants to use it.

Read free or die!

does the effect go both ways? i'm not dyslexic and it appears that the font set is breathing. i can't keep my eyes on it
for more than 5 seconds without feelings slightly nauseous.

Wow, I didn't know there was a cartoon icon for that Spoony bit. Well played.

I see letters on a page or screen as flatted 3d objects rotating and standing still at the same time. Like if you were to cut them out, look at all the sides and them memorize them. This font does nothing for me. I have found that Times New Roman works pretty well since the d and b are different enough as are the p and q.

The only advantage I have found to the way my mind sees objects on all sides at once is in dealing with blueprints and assembly instructions.

xanadian: It's the new Comic Sans.


Use of Comic Sans is one of the markers of "we're not going to get along".

RedVentrue: The fun of mastering dyslexia is I can read from any orientation, or in a mirror.


I wondered why a professor asked me if I was dyslexic while helping an ESOL student. I am not, but I read excellently without concern for the orientation of words and basically any angle or reasonable distance. Helps because I don't want to take a book from a student to tell them what a word is, and until a little older the students rarely think to make the task any easier by turning a book around and making sure someone can see the pages.

Anyone can learn the trick, but dyslexics must learn, because of the nature of the problem.
