A Font Designed To Show Readers What It Feels Like To Have Dyslexia

Dyslexia makes reading a real pain, so those who suffer with the condition have been hard at work creating fonts designed to help those with dyslexia improve their reading ability.

But this isn't one of those fonts designed to help the dyslexic, this font created by Daniel Britton is designed show those who don't have dyslexia what it's like to read when you have dyslexia.

Daniel's font makes reading this simple message a slow and cumbersome process, and he feels this font is a more realistic version of what letters look like when you have dyslexia:

For most people the letters and numbers do not jump around on the page and the colours remain the same, it is simply a break down in communication between they eye and the brain, for most people you can see the information, you can see perfectly each and every letter form but there is something in your mind that is stopping or slowing the process of information and for most this is Dyslexia.

-Via The Daily What

The worst part for dyslexics is handwriting (without writing characters reversed or swapping two letters), which a font obviously can't replicate. So remember, you're still only getting a taste of a fraction of the disability.
