I recently came across and interesting article about a design student in London who created a new font to illustrate what it was like to be dyslexic.  Above is a sample of text using this font.  Can you read any of the text?

Here are some interesting quotes from the article:

  • Taking Helvetica as its base, Britton’s font subtracts roughly 40% of the typeface’s lines.
  • “At least for me…it’s more like text looks normal, but the part of my brain that decodes it just isn’t awake.”
  • “When I showed it to classmates, they were suddenly like, ‘Oh! Okay. I get it,'” he says. “Which is all I needed to hear.”

If you would like to read the article and try to decode more messages in this font click on the link above.
