How about a Hero tag for Mr. Gonzalez. He made it free to use instead of trying to make money off of a disability.

I can, but that's mainly because of an acute case of Tolkien poisoning as a youth.

If you can decipher it easily, you're either a Viking or the Avatar.

I honestly did not catch that until I had installed the Chrome extension to use the font.


You can download it for free here.

DON.MAC: If the b and d are mirror images, the font designer fails with dyslexia.



Interestingly enough even though they appear to be mirror images, my eyes want to focus on the upper right part of the circle for the b and upper left part of the circle for the d. The off center placement of the circle seems to help a bunch.

/dyslexic

namegoeshere: The capital i should have a crossbar at top and bottom. It still looks like a lowercase L.



Serious question, is that actually the issue?  I dated a girl with dyslexia, but she never got much treatment for it and wasn't really able to articulate anything about it.
 
Her valentines/birthday/christmas cards to me were pretty friggin' hilarious.
 
/No offense... she was able to joke about it.
