Bob Cook's Comments

I used to live on the top floor of an old apartment building with no elevator and sound announced the start of my morning exercise as I grabbed some clothes and ran down the narrow stairs hoping that the truck hadn't go too far down the road. Now it just means that I have to be extra careful driving to avoid all the people focused on getting their garbage to the truck - the joys of living in a Taiwanese city with no sidewalks.

Interestingly some cities have tried using the trucks to teach English , the only footage I can find is on this blog

Searching for the footage I came across musical garbage trucks in Japan, and Mongolia

Actually John W I think the current lexima font site has the annual fee one band higher than you've got them

So for my small business of 9 people (one of whom is dyslexic)

5-30 at € 775 per year + shipping € 14.49...em not going to happen

This made me curious to know if there were other dyslexia friendly fonts available for a more sensible price, so far:

-specifically designed-
Lexia Readable available from K-Type
Sylexiad available from robsfonts

-seem to be useful for some people-
ClearviewADA from Terminal Design
Optima available from boldfonts
Sassoon Sans from clubtype
Myriad Pro available from Adobe (worth doing a search for)
Comic Sans look on your current windows machine under embarrassing fonts
