The Dyslexie font

Graphic designer Christian Boer has dyslexia himself and designed the font to improve his reading life. People with dyslexia often swap, rotate and flip letters without noticing. The problem is that some letters are too similar to each other. Dyslexie font is designed so that every letter is unique in its own form. This counters the rotation, flipping and reversal of the letters. Sometimes they have a “crowding effect” (the apparent fusion of letters) because they are too close to each other. In addition, the font has extra distance between the letters (kerning) and between words (spaces). Dyslexic people may also overlook the beginning of a sentence and read two sentences as one. Therefore, the capital letters are bolder so the reader will easily identify the beginning of a new sentence.

Christian Boer has been able to help hundreds of thousands of people with dyslexia all over the world with the Dyslexie font. The font is easy to install and can display all types of text in the Dyslexie font on computers and the Internet

01 Heavy bottom

Dyslexie acknowledges that letters can be viewed as 3D objects. If letters are 3D objects, then gravity applies. Dyslexie weighs down the bottom of each letter, preventing it from tipping upside down.

02 Slanted parts

Characters which look quite similar have been adapted by changing the tails, to reduce the similarity and avoid the problem of mirror letters.

03 Bigger openings

The openings within letters have been given more breathing room. These airier letters are more distinctive, so it is easier to see them as unique letterforms.

04 Slanted letters

Characters which look quite similar have been adapted by changing the letter slightly to avoid the problem of mirror letter and tipping letters.

05 Longer ascender & descender

By lengthening the ascender and descender of the letters, the difference is emphasized. So it is easier to see them as unique letterforms.

06 Bold capitals

To prevent sentences from running together, punctuation marks and capital letters are much bolder in Dyslexie Font

07 Different heights

Letters that are usually twins now have unique features so that they no longer resemble each other entirely. Here, the inner corners of the letters appear at different heights and angles.

08 Higher X axis

The openings within letters have been given more breathing room. These airier letters are more distinctive, so it is easier to see them as unique letterforms.

09 Better spacing

The Dyslexie font has extra distance between letters and between words. This makes reading easier and helps avoid the crowding-effect.
