Cannot believe somebody took money for a font for dislexic people.

Luckily there's an open font now. You are free to pay any price. opendyslexic.org/

@pschwede According to this sadly one and only study, the fact that the creator of a font tries to make it good for a certain purpose does not mean they succeeded.

Based on the criteria listed there, it sounds like a sans mono font like Consolas should fare pretty well.

@clacke
You might be right.

@pschwede I found my reference while looking for support for what I've heard about Comic Sans being suitable, but alas that seems to be purely gut feeling too.
