Default Oo oo, Scientific American on new font for dyslexics

This is DELICIOUS - the font itself, the illustrations, the description in the article of motives and methods, and most of all, the linked PDF "Read this article in Dyslexie."

Bold Stroke: New Font Helps Dyslexics Read

Methinks the design principles described here are of general use. Dyslexie ain't beautiful, except in an exotic sorta way, but I was surprised at how it accelerated my own reading. (I'm not dyslexic, far as I know!)
